DESCRIPTION

Mass social movements are important political actors that have strongly influenced the social and political milieu of advanced industrialised nations. In this unit we will examine protest based environmental and anti-globalisation movements and their predecessors, including the civil rights and feminist movements. Providing an opportunity for critical assessment of current debates on the nature and importance of social movements, we will examine the main types of contemporary mass social movements, introduce key concepts in the analyses of social movements and major theoretical debates, and consider some of the methodological problems encountered in social movement research.
