Before and after taking the streets: Social movement continuity and social movement outcomes

Chairs: Priska Daphi & Lorenzo Zamponi

Though large protests often surprise observers, they hardly start from scratch. Mostly, they are rooted in previous mobilisations, and they tend to produce outcomes which will have in turn an influence on future mobilisation. This panel focuses on what happens before and after large protests, addressing both the issues of movement continuity and movement outcomes. On the one hand, we aim to shed light on the role of organisations, submerged networks, abeyance structures, free spaces and other actors and mechanisms in ensuring continuity between different waves of protest. On the other hand, we intend to focus on outcomes with respect to the effects on activists’ life-courses and movements’ internal organization, beyond the traditional analysis of the movements’ influence on policy-making. We welcome contributions on the two topics and invite in particular attempts to bridge them, aiming to analyse how the perceived success or failure of previous mobilisation affects future activism.
