New forms of collective action
This project has been a part of Centre for Research on Civil Society and Voluntary Sector.
The various forms of mobilisation and participation within civil society are changing. While the relationship between voluntary organisations and their members change, new forms of participation emerge alongside the established structures.
This project highlighted the extent and significance of such new forms of collective action, along with how new forms of mobilisation and organisation affect civil society as an arena of engagement, expression and community. We focused particularly on three types of change processes and the new types of participation and organisation that accompany them:
Digitalization and the growth of social media.
The growth of new local forms of organising.
The growth of a multicultural, transnational civil society.
