Donatella della Porta - Social Movements and Citizenship Rights in the Great Recession
Social movement studies have developed a useful kit of concepts and theories, well adapted to understand social movements in core capitalist countries in the peak of the growth of the welfare state. This is, however, insufficient for understanding global contentious politics in the year 2000s. In particular, assumptions about the role of political opportunities, resource mobilization and framing processes need to be updated when applied to different types of conflict, adding in particular a focus on the socio-economic conditions for protests. A dialogue between social movement studies and political economy is needed in order to help understand the ways in which the capitalist developments account for the specific forms social movements take but without forgetting the agentic strength of social movements as producers of social change.
