Restructuring ‘Hegemony’ in the Age of Neoliberal Globalization

Year 2014, Volume 9, Issue 1, 91 - 112, 02.11.2014

Abstract

This article aims to present a critical evaluation of the theory of hegemonic stability and world system theory on an epistemological and an ontological basis and provides an alternative theoretical route by associating the process of globalisation with the reconstruction of hegemony in today’s world. In parallel with this objective, a Gramscian derived articulation of hegemony is presented in order to analyze the role of the global configuration of capital, state and social relations of production in the formation process of the transnational historic bloc as a new hegemonic constellation. From this point of view, hegemony, in its simple terms, is conceptualized as a prevailing consensus among transnationalizing social forces consist of classes, international institutions, globally-minded, political elites and transnational capitalist class. Briefly stated, drawing on neo-Gramscian approach and theory of global capitalism, this study aims to provide an up-to-date and analytically valid conceptualization of hegemony in the age of neo-liberal globalization.

Neo-liberal Küreselleşme Çağında ‘Hegemonya’ yı Yeniden Yapılandırmak

Year 2014, Volume 9, Issue 1, 91 - 112, 02.11.2014

Abstract

Bu makale Hegemonik İstikrar ve Dünya Sistemi kuramlarının epistemolojik ve ontolojik düzeyde eleştirel bir değerlendirmesini yapmayı ve günümüz dünyasında hegemonyanın yeniden inşasını küreselleşme süreci ile ilişkilendirerek alternatif bir kuramsal rota sunmayı amaçlamaktadır. Bu hedef doğrultusunda, yeni bir hegemonik yapılanma olarak ulusötesi tarihsel bloğun oluşum sürecinde sermayenin, devletin ve toplumsal üretim ilişkilerinin küresel biçimlenişinin oynadığı rolü değerlendirebilmek amacıyla hegemonya meselesinin Gramscici bir ifadelendirmesi sunulacaktır. Bu bakış açısından hareketle en basit anlamıyla hegemonya, uluslararası kurumlar, küreselleşme yanlısı siyasal elitler ve ulusötesi kapitalist sınıflardan müteşekkil ulusötesileşen toplumsal güçler arasında hakim olan bir mutabakat olarak kavramsallaştırılmaktadır. Kısaca ifade etmek gerekirse bu çalışma yeni Gramscici yaklaşıma ve küresel kapitalizm kuramına dayanarak neo-liberal küreselleşme çağında hegemonyanın daha güncel ve analitik olarak daha geçerli bir yorumunu sunmayı hedeflemektedir.
