Ten years after the protests in Seattle in 1999, this article aims to conduct an evaluation of the anti-globalization movement. Our hypothesis is that during those years, the ntiglobalization movement has shown an important ability to organize, mobilize and infl uence in the international scene, and that it is currently living a stage of crisis as an actor, but with a large part of its legacy having being made into a new framework for transnational collective action. Thus, this paper presents the movement and its features, including a brief terminological and conceptual discussion; an explanation about its origins, reviewing the main cycles and agendas; a study of the fi rst signs of exhaustion of the anti-globalization movement, and the arguments that, beyond the movement´s crisis, there is also a conceptualcrisis in order to explain the new transnational activism; and, fi nally, a refl ection on some of the challenges faced by global movements nowadays.
