CALL FOR PAPERS
ECPR General Conference, Reykjavik: 25th – 27th August 2011
Deadline for proposals: February 1st 2011
Violence and Social Movements Panel
The study of social movements is closely imbricated with questions of violence. Violence can be associated with movement activity (eg rioting, paramilitarism, revolutionary situations) and with state repression of movements (eg policing, political police, martial law). It can be used symbolically to mediate issues of the respective legitimacy of state power and movement activity, and is subject to global and historical shifts in meaning and deployment.
Social movement research has produced studies of aspects of violence, such as protest policing, revolutions, rioting, urban guerrillas, non-violence, etc, but rarely integrates these with questions of violence as such. This panel welcomes proposals from any relevant discipline, in particular those which set their empirical material in a wider historical or comparative context.
