Literature Review on the Dynamics of Social Movements in Fragile and Conflict-affected States

by Lucy Earle

Aug 1, 2011
This literature review makes a preliminary assessment of the available academic and policy-oriented literature on social movements in states in situations of fragility, and affected by conflict. It examines who becomes involved in collective action and why, the barriers to mobilisation and, where social movements do emerge, how these are able to sustain mobilisation and broaden their membership base to reflect the interests of the wider community.
