Differences in. civil society's understanding, analysis and strategies pertaining 'to g]oha1i:il,ation spring frum discrepancies in long-held frameworks, group interests and preferred strategies, among other factcrs ..

In addition to the \oVTO, the role of multil ateral bodies .. such as thcWm·id Bank (ViB) andthe Iatemational Monetary Fund [IMP), in macroenonornic porieymnking, ls deemed. a major concern in the process of polttloal-eecnornic globalization, These institutions are perceived as fnfluential bodie::: defining the developmental and 31"Owth framework of developing countries.

FQr example, major labor organizations included in this study diverge on the issue of the "social clause" as a concern to be Ineluded in iaternatioaal trade agreements, For same. it is an .effort to offset the neg a ti ve implications' of trade Iiberalization while for others it is considered counterproductive to incorporate labor rights in [fade negotiations. The divergence in pri()riti~ing issue-areas among labor organizations carl be explai n cd by" thei r differi rig ldeologica 1 or political ussocmtions with like-minded orgarrieations,

The same can be observed in the case of women's organizations that raise the issues of increased trafficking and commodiflcatlon O't 'women asbordsrs become porous in III glc)nalizing world, Qne an wonder, however, how these issues be contestualixed in their CUTir<cot dlsecusse nn 81~lbalization. when issues suc.h as prostitution or t.raffiddng have already been present before the term "globalization" became eommortplaee.

One key convergence issue among the responses Is, the ccneern for: the lack of a oeherent economic dcvelepment progmol en a, national scale addressing the lmpliear ions of glohalizatiun, spEcifically 'the lack of a coherent eeonomic strategy to deal with the lntluence ofmtcrn .. tlonal eeonomie institutions (i.e. ''ITO. 1FTs).

It has alreadr been noted that some political and social issues of the groups have been present even befoI'€, the globalization trend is highlighted {i.e, prosrltntion, asset reforms, lowwage]. This could

Fiscrdan.d monetary PQli:cy

The Asian financial crisis of 1997-98 has situated the re-examination and amendment of fiscal and. monetary policies on the main agenda of CSOs, The main argument is that the govemment is 'too fixated on speculative investment. Rather than encouraging long-term investment to generate revenue and emp]oyment. the gcvernment is, providing too many ineenttves to soorHe-nIl "~JOrt:llilJli[l capita]. such as tax br-eaks and repatri ati an m capital, which are Dot beneficial to the eountry's economy. As a result. the eeuntry has become. vulnerable to the vCllati11:ty of inbel1'lationalfin.<mcial markets and has alrncst no instrurnents '(0 restrain fue herd-like bffiavior oHickle investors. In response, CSOs propose to Institute capital controls and encoure,ge investment ininfrastrucnrre and prnduetive capncity instead mthe kind£"u_l ado D ~ssoc-iated: with a '"bubble" economy. !BON alsorecnmmends the establishment of 131. nationalized banking system whc .. e tbe banksare more in control of capital eoming in and out ofthe economy.

Industrial policy remains dependent on foreign trade, according to most esos, As a result theeeenemie downturn of major trading partners such as the Unired Statesand Japan has severe 'implica.tioiIlS on tha Philippine industries' capacity to achieve 11 tong-term strategy for growth. Stkking to a policy whiehties the economy to exports

and foreign investments, when neither i'-,:; forthcoming, is net helping the already sluggish economy. 11'1 this context, CSOs have been pushing, for industrial development that is sustainahle and appropriate to the Pl':dUppineH' needs, Akbaycm proposes a strategy fcr-Industrialiaation based on the use of resonrcesthst the country has in relative abundance as well as its perceivedcomparative advantage. lt also highlights the rural focus of industrial polk")' to reduce poverty in the countryside, Moreover, .Akbayan believes that Qtbe core of what is known as industrial policy is the protection of infant industries Wltil they are able to compete in a competitive domestlc market <Iud art! ahle to establish fu-m loctholdsiu foreign markets."! In order to .spur production at thl;l Icca] level and tap alternative markets, Kasaria"I-K,alnYClrw (SAR]LAYA) also favors the p'rovision of investme n l opti 0 nsto small and rnedi urn enterprises, such as miem-finance and rnicrc-baeed market systems, For their part" Boyan M'lmo and !BON advocate "national industrializatlen" lhaL builds a modern and di\'ers,itled. economy 'With at! independeet and eco,lcgkaUy frl~ndl:v teclmoh1gical b~U:H!.

On these Gccasio~:s o~ gl c bal mov.emeDt and. action .. th~ . role .

Another tnteresting facet that emerges frfJ[l1 tbe sUldy is the dynamics of stat,e-clvri !Society and intra-civil wcietyreJations in push i ng for BI broad and ell nee ned action in.

Critical engagement with the state is stiU dee:DJet"\ fundamental as apolitical strut~-- NGOs and POs have u'lilil'td 'Ute formal means of iutervention 8S mandated by thele&ul/poHcy €11'Ilil'1Oilltlent to make the government ltseen in draft~ng paUci~ CE trade-related issues and in lmplernenting development projQel~ sponsnred by multilateral in li utions, But when ttu:!re i Dot enull~ d ernoeratie space for debate, pontic •• l leverage and public PN;SftUn,: us a WRy to fncr~a$e cac s influertee vb~c-.-vi~ the state can be used rcspon1libly b)t non-stare ~I't.urs, This can be aocompU:;:h~d 'lhnn.lgb the media, public forums, dialogues and symposia, and ~wod pub lc relations with governmen; f]ffldll!s,

The recognition of actor beyond the state has also defined the actlons and advocacy of 'PhUiPPIl'Ie ch":il seciety. Civil society has taken advantage of this dUfusiol'l of 'luthl'Jl!'lty and ~u]ti~k~'V~ governance 'to guarantee that their ceueerns are au:ended! topd dealt with. Since st:uta." now do Dot possess sole authorl:ly in th~ governance lit global. relatinns and, as C~Os have e: pf\essed a', multilatera lin 1i:1i l utiens lIB ve und errn i n~d thclrrunttiQI'I.s •. itnray seem inadequate to engage the state alone and not supplement such a strategy with direct klhbying of glob ..

It is lrikely, then, that the jssues taken up by d\'il society are more of.!l. product of govern men t deelsions and <lCUtH1Ji I rather than a spontaneous response to globalization.
