    When stating that occupations are illegal, the legal text is used as the main or only criterion for legality — and this is problematic for many reasons. In so doing, it raises questions about the applicability of social movement theory based mainly on experiences in the North. The centrality of resources to the success of social movements explains why some discontented people are able to form movements while others are not. Earle offers an innovative perspective on how the urban poor see themselves as citizens.

    First-wave feminism refers to a period of feminist activity during the 19th and early twentieth century in the United Kingdom, Canada, the Netherlands and the United States. And they are not only calling on moral arguments, but mainly on legal ones: the Brazilian Constitution affirms that private property requires a social function, otherwise it may be subject to expropriation; the constitutional texts also assert housing as a social right. Some of the assumptions of the theory include: there will always be grounds for protest in modern, politically pluralistic societies because there is constant discontent i. As such, new movements are often considered to be anti-authoritarian. Buechler and F. There are, nevertheless, notable success stories in the extent to which social movements in the South have managed to assert their rights and to extract concessions from the state, and a few of these are captured in the chapters that follow.

    Sidney Tarrow: present a professor of political science and sociology, known for his research in the areas of comparative politics, social movements, political parties, collective actions and political sociology. Furthermore, through its specific focus on social movements, this volume makes an important contribution to the range of conceptual tools through which 'claiming citizenship' maybe understood and analysed. Several theories have been proposed to explain the creation of social movements. In so doing, it raises questions about the applicability of social movement theory based mainly on experiences in the North. As an in-depth and well-conceived source for beginners, experienced scholars and students alike, it provides theoretically rich, methodologically diverse, and empirically wide-ranging chapters on political struggles over citizenship. The theory argues that social movements develop when individuals with grievances are able to mobilize sufficient resources to take action.

Citizenship and social movements book

Details Description This book makes an important contribution towards an understanding of citizenship as mediated by other collective, historically determined identities: of gender, ethnicity, class and national status.

Feelings of deprivation are relative, as they come from a comparison to social norms that are not absolute and usually differ from time and place. Revolutionary social movements occur at a broader group or societal level and advocate for radical changes.

Current theoretical perspectives include new social movement theory, resource mobilisation theory, the cyclical approach and political opportunity structures. Targets: Group-focused movements focus on influencing groups or society in general; for example, attempting to change the political system from a monarchy to a democracy.

The movement arose as responses to what young women thought of as perceived failures of the second-wave. The ways in which mobilization, collective action and social movements manifest themselves in these spaces are key to understanding the processes of collective identity formation as citizens attempt to exercise both their individual and collective rights.

This book explores the significance and meaning of the countryside within mid-twentieth century youth movements.
