This panel aims to explore the current state of protest in Southern European countries, focusing especially on the process of demobilization. The notion of demobilization covers a plurality of phenomena ranging from individual disengagement to the political demobilization of an entire social movement sector. The panel invites papers focusing on the macro- and meso-level of collective demobilization as well as on the micro- level of individual disengagement. It especially welcomes papers adopting an integrative approach that links contexts, processes and actors. Papers may cover the region comparatively or focus on single-country case studies.
Applicants are invited to submit paper title, keywords (max. 8) and an abstract up to
