    Social Movements in Global Politics.David West - 2013 - Polity.
    In the face of impending global crises and stubborn conflicts, a conventional view of politics risks leaving us confused and fatalistic, feeling powerless because we are unaware of all that can be achieved by political means. By contrast, a variety of recent social movements, ranging from those of women, gays and lesbians and anti-racists, to environmentalists, the Occupy movement and the Arab Spring, demonstrate the enormous potential of political action beyond the institutional sphere of politics. At the same (...)

    How Social Movements Generate New, Profit-Driven Organizational Forms: Exploring Socially Responsible Investment Changes Across Time and Space.Linda Markowitz, Céline Louche & Jean-Pascal Gond - 2008 - Proceedings of the International Association for Business and Society 19:246-255.
    This paper investigates how social movements generate new and profit-driven organizational forms in the context of Socially Responsible Investment. Building on empirical evidence from previous research, we highlight the transformation of SRI from an activist-driven movement aimed at lobbying corporations for social causes to a profit-driven industry focused on generating revenue for investors. We first show this change as it occurs across time in the US. Then, we discuss the cross-cultural diffusion of this practice from US to (...)

    A Social Movement Perspective on Finance: How Socially Responsible Investment Mattered. [REVIEW]Diane-Laure Arjaliès - 2010 - Journal of Business Ethics 92 (S1):57 - 78.
    This study discusses how social movements can influence economic systems. Employing a political-cultural approach to markets, it purports that 'compromise movements' can help change existing institutions by proposing new ones. This study argues in favor of the role of social movements in reforming economic institutions. More precisely, Socially Responsible Investment (SRI) movements can help bring SRI concerns into financial institutions. A study of how the French SRI movement has been able to change entrenched institutional (...)

  5. Putting Social Movements in Their Place: Explaining Opposition to Energy Projects in the United States, 2000–2005.Doug McAdam & Hilary Boudet - 2012 - Cambridge University Press.
    The field of social movement studies has expanded dramatically over the past three decades. But as it has done so, its focus has become increasingly narrow and 'movement-centric'. When combined with the tendency to select successful struggles for study, the conceptual and methodological conventions of the field conduce to a decidedly Ptolemaic view of social movements: one that exaggerates the frequency and causal significance of movements as a form of politics. This book reports the results of (...)

    Social Movements.Avery Kolers - 2016 - Philosophy Compass 11 (10):580-590.
    Social movements are ubiquitous in political life. But what are they? What makes someone a member of a social movement, or some action an instance of movement activity? Are social movements compatible with democracy? Are they required for it? And how should individuals respond to movement calls to action? Philosophers have had much to say on issues impinging on social movements but much less to say on social movements as such. The (...)

    Although the literature on social innovation has focused primarily on social enterprises, social innovation has long occurred within mainstream corporations. Drawing upon recent scholarship on social movements and institutional complexity, we analyze how movements foster corporate social innovation. Our context is the adoption of green information systems, which are information systems employed to transform organizations and society into more sustainable entities. We trace the historical emergence of green IS as a corporate response to (...)

    Social Movements, Historical Absence and the Problematization of Self-Harm in the UK, 1980–2000.Mark Cresswell & Tom Brock - 2017 - Journal of Critical Realism 16 (1):7-25.
    ABSTRACTThis article engages Bhaskar's category of absence and Foucault's notion of problematization in the context of explaining an example of the historical emergence of political activism. Specifically, it considers the emergence of the ‘psychiatric survivors’ social movement in the UK, with a focus on the ‘politics of self-harm’. The politics of self-harm refers to acts of self-injurious behaviour, such as drug over-dosage or self-laceration, which do not result in death and which bring individuals to the attention of psychiatric services.

    Urban Social Movements in South Africa Today: Its Meaning for Theological Education and the Church.Stephan F. De Beer - 2017 - HTS Theological Studies 73 (3).
    In the past decade, significant social movements emerged in South Africa, in response to specific urban challenges of injustice or exclusion. This article will interrogate the meaning of such urban social movements for theological education and the church. Departing from a firm conviction that such movements are irruptions of the poor, in the way described by Gustavo Gutierrez and others, and that movements of liberation residing with, or in a commitment to, the poor, should (...)

    Progressive Social Movements and the Creation of European Public Spheres.Donatella Della Porta - 2022 - Theory, Culture and Society 39 (4):51-65.
    While the normative debate on European integration has addressed the importance of the construction of truly democratic institutions as well as the establishment of social rights at EU level, the role of progressive social movements has not been much debated. Building upon theorization and research in social movement studies, I argue that progressive social movements are indeed already contributing to the construction of European public spheres. Not one liberal, public sphere but the proliferation of (...)

    Social Movements and Critical Discourses in Former Yugoslavia: Structural Approach.Filip Balunovic - 2021 - Filozofija I Društvo 32 (2):296-317.
    Until a decade ago, a comprehensive contestation of the so-called?transitional? paradigm was largely missing in the post-socialist era. This reality changed in the last ten years, especially in the region of former Yugoslavia. Some social movements in this region have started questioning the very essence of the economic and social misconceptions of the post-socialist condition. This paper first provides an elaboration of the very conceptual edifice of the ruling paradigm, as well as a theoretical and methodological framework. (...)

    Social Problems and Social Movements: An Exploration Into the Sociological Construction of Alternative Realities.Harry H. Bash - 1994 - Humanity Books.
    Sociology is becoming fragmented. With specialised fields spinning off beyond the capacity of a unifying theoretical frame to embrace them, the prospect exists that sociology's vital centre may not hold. Proceeding from a social constructionist perspective, this work examines the existence and probes the origins of the specialised sociological fields of social problems and social movements. Conceptual ambiguities that currently plague both specialisations are noted, as are their effective theoretical isolation from general sociological theory. Each field (...)

    The Unfinished Revolution: Social Movement Theory and the Gay and Lesbian Movement.Stephen M. Engel - 2001 - Cambridge University Press.
    The Unfinished Revolution compares the post-Second World War histories of the American and British gay and lesbian movements with an eye toward understanding how distinct political institutional environments affect the development, strategies, goals, and outcomes of a social movement. Stephen M. Engel utilizes an electic mix of source materials ranging from the theories of Mancur Olson and Michel Foucault to Supreme Court rulings and film and television dialogue. The two case study chapters function as brief historical sketches to (...)

    Social Movement Organization Leaders and the Creation of Markets for “Local” Goods.Sara Jane McCaffrey & Nancy B. Kurland - 2016 - Business and Society 55 (7):1017-1058.
    Research illustrates that social movements can fuel new markets and that these markets can create social change, but the role of leaders in this process is less understood. This exploratory interview-based study of the localism movement contributes to such understanding. It articulates the relationship of social movement leaders and the legitimacy of their organizations to new market creation. Specifically, leaders in this study engaged in a dual role to legitimize their organizations and to legitimize the movement. (...)

    The Social Movement for Truth and Justice - Pragmatic Alliance-Building with Political Parties in Bosnia and Herzegovina.Valida Repovac-Niksic, Jasmin Hasanovic, Emina Adilovic & Damir Kapidzic - 2022 - Filozofija I Društvo 33 (1):143-161.
    Protests among citizens of Bosnia and Herzegovina are becoming more frequent. Most often, their aim is to decry the dysfunctionality and opacity of the government, which are the result of the ethno-political structure created by the Dayton Agreement, but also a trend towards democratic regression and autocracy. A number of authors have tackled the?JMBG? protests of 2013 and the Plenums that emerged from the February 2014 protests, from their particular disciplines. The focus of this paper is the social movement?Justice (...)

    Social Movements as Nationalisms or, On the Very Idea of a Queer Nation.Brian Walker - 1996 - Canadian Journal of Philosophy, Supplementary Volume 22:505-547.
    Given the immense mobilizing power possessed by the rhetoric of nationalism, as well as the many resources which can be tapped by groups which successfully establish national claims, it is not surprising that we have recently seen such a resurgence in nationalist discourse. One of the things which may surprise us, however, is the growing breadth in thetypesof groups which now launch such claims. No longer is the discourse of nationalism limited to use by ethnic groups and territorial populations. Recently (...)

The expanded role of courts in the Canadian political system has had substantial effects on public policy in the lesbian and gay rights area over a twenty-year period, putting Canada in the forefront of this area of (...)

    New Social Movements, Political Culture, and Democracy: Brazil and Argentina in the 1980s.Scott Mainwaring & Eduardo Viola - 1984 - Telos: Critical Theory of the Contemporary 1984 (61):17-52.
    One of the most important phenomena in contemporary South America has been the tendency towards more democratic systems. After protracted periods of authoritarian rule, Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay, and Bolivia appear to be heading in a more democratic direction. This process has awakened political hopes and attracted intellectual reflection, especially regarding Brazil and Argentina, the largest and most influential nations of South America. Both countries are in different moments, with different timings, in transitions which could lead to the establishment of stable (...)

    The fields of gender and social movements have traditionally consisted of separate literatures. Recently, however, a number of scholars have begun a fruitful exploration of the ways in which gender shapes political protest. This study adds three things to this ongoing discussion. First, the authors offer a systematic typology of the various ways in which movements are gendered and apply that typology to a wide variety of movements, including those that do not center on gender issues (...)

    Este texto elabora un análisis metodológico y político de lo que implica pensar el discurso de los movimientos sociales en Colombia como lugar para comprender el conflicto político. Ello implica comenzar por una reflexión sobre lo que está juego en la política del lenguaje en la coyuntura histórica de lo que se ha dado en llamar la posverdad. Ante el reto de esta coyuntura, se propone la perspectiva de una ontología de lo político de corte posestructuralista como vía para articular (...)

    Europeanization and social movement mobilization during the European sovereign debt crisis: The cases of Spain and Greece.Angela Bourne & Sevasti Chatzopoulou - 2015 - Recerca.Revista de Pensament I Anàlisi 17:33-60.
    The article addresses Europeanization of social movements in the context of the European Sovereign Debt Crisis. Europeanization occurs when movements collaborate, or make horizontal communicative linkages with movements in other countries, contest authorities beyond the state, frame issues as European and claim a European identity. The article presents a theoretical framework and research design for measuring the degree of social movement Europeanization followed by results of a pilot study on mobilization in Spain and Greece during (...)
