(p.261) Conclusion
Resisting Militarism

Chris Rossdale

Edinburgh University Press

The conclusion returns to the politics of prefiguration and political coalition. There are certain dangers involved in practices of resistance which set themselves in opposition to coherent and stable enemies, and which seek to build hegemonic coalitions. Such practices often struggle to contend with how resistance is shaped and produced by those very power systems it seeks to oppose. The chapter outlines some of these challenges, before suggesting how an understanding of anti-militarism as a prefigurative ethics of resistance which seeks to reveal, limit, or disrupt violence, and which recognises that its task is never complete, may offer some pathways through.
