Angular correlations of two and more particles are a sensitive probe of the transport properties of the system produced in heavy-ion collisions. In pp and p-Pb collisions, recent results revealed intriguing long-range correlation structures reminiscent of features observed in heavy-ion collisions. We will show recent results from the analysis of two-particle correlations in pp, p-Pb, and Pb-Pb collisions in ALICE. New results involving forward detectors address the question if these long-range correlation structures persist at large rapidities. The talk will discuss what can be learned about the physics processes occurring in small systems and in particular the question if evidence for collective effects exists.
