This article analyzes how the ‘progressive’ imagination of Euromaidan protesters in Ukraine discursively produced the internal ‘other’ as a singular ...

Players and Arenas aims at promoting the strategic interaction perspective (SIP)—a theoretical effort to bridge the gap between the structural paradigm and cultural theories in political sociology and social movements studies.

Despite growing popularity of libertarian and radically democratic organizations and forms of action in contemporary social movements research rarely deals with anarchy movements. Leadership approaches and explanations using political opportunities are of very limited use in the field of anarchy. Especially the anti-hierarchical, anti-dominance and anti-state attitudes of anarchists have implications for the repertoire of ...

Two sources of expansion of the norm are considered - social movements (using the example of the movement for neurodiversity) and formal sciences represented by logic.

Demographic changes associated with the transition from traditional to modern economies underlie many modern theories of protest formation. Both the level of urbanization and the “Youth Bulge” effect have proven to be particularly reliable indicators for predicting protest events. However, given that in the course of economic development these processes often occur simultaneously, it seems ...

In the late 2000s, a number of analysts were optimistic about Brazil’s future. Their expectant analyses did not bear out, however, as a political and economic crisis developed just as Brazil was gearing up to host two mega-events, the World Cup in 2014 and the Olympic Games in 2016. This paper has two aims. The ...

Extractive capital and multi-scalar environmental politics: interpreting the exit of Rio Tinto from the diamond fields of Central India
, , Third World Quarterly 2021 Vol. 42 No. 8 P. 1770-1787
Rio Tinto had been developing a diamond mining project in Madhya Pradesh for a decade when in 2017 it hastily abandoned the project. We analyse this counterintuitive exit through an ethnographic approach nested within a qualitative case study framework. We argue that the exit was caused by multi-scalar politics. Local protests over livelihood and labour issues –pre-emptively rearticulated by regional ...

Struggles against eviction are key moments in the (re)production of informal housing in Brazilian cities, as they contest the uprooting and displacement of generally low-income families. While recent research has focused on displacement due to the World Cup and Olympic Games mega-events, this paper explores struggles against eviction that are less high profile, underscoring the ...

This study evaluates existent social movement literature on this subject and builds upon it using theories within the field of social networks and segregation. The study at hand synthesizes theories of bridging and homophily with undercurrents from ...

Despite widespread scholarly attention on social movement media coverage, the full range of organizations appearing in the media with movements remains underexamined. To analyze this organizational complexity, we draw upon field theory, relating it to concepts from social network analysis. We hypothesize that interactions with stateembedded actors increase field stability, yet this effect decreases with ...
