Abstract [en]

This study aims to investigate globalizing processes within the crude informal EEE recycling industry of Agbogbloshie, Ghana by researching local-global interactions from an actor-network theory perspective. The research is conducted with a multi-methods approach that built on participant and informant interviews, statistical data and discourse analysis. The main finding is that the industry is part of a number of complex local-global interactions which take discursive, material and economic forms. Through these interactions the industry takes part of ongoing multidirectional globalizing movements which are accompanied by discursive and physical shaping of both local and global actors.
