Social movements and collective actions are key catalysts in social and political change, and in the reduction of inequalities in society. This course will use both empirical studies of social movements and theoretical treatments of key issues to examine the social and political context of protest. The focus will be on key questions such as: Under what circumstances do social movements emerge? How do activists choose political tactics and strategies?; And, how do movements affect social and political change? 100% internal assessment.
