Protest and Politics of Grievance in Europe
The recent EU politics have been marked by global and euro crisis, new austerity policies, and challenges to European integration. From self-immolations in Bulgaria, the victory of "clowns" in Lithuania, Ireland, and Italy, to rising protest movements, the Europe faces new forms of political activism, which variously embrace ideas of democracy, nation, and community. This panel interrogates how the new Europe is imagined and shaped by various political activists; how various forms of dispossession are communicated and expressed in popular movements; how socialist, liberal, and national ideologies are integrated into protest movements; and what constitutes European political cultures of grievance and discontent. By exploring multiple forms of political activism, this panel aims to contribute to scholarship on resistance, protest movements, nationalism, and European integration.
