Abstract: This thesis is a study of factors affecting coalition budding in the U.S. global justice movement. The study is based on data collected in twelve openended interviews with organizers from South Floridians for Fair Trade and Global Justice and Root Cause, two coalitions formed to protest the Miami FTAA ministerial of November 2003. Employing several schools of social movement theory, the analysis identifies factors that aid and inhibit coalition building. The potential for coalition success is shaped by both external political opportunity structure and factors internal to the movement. Internal factors include networks and alliances between organizations and individuals, strategic approaches, framing of concerns and goals, internal decision-making structures, and above all the presence of a participatory coalition decision-making structure. The concluding chapter attempts to relate several lessons and recommendations for global justice coalition building in the U.S. gleaned from experiences in Miami 2003.
