Abstract

The panel is focused on the interaction between cues sent by political context (national institutions, political elites, economic crisis) and the heuristics and perceptions used by ordinary citizens and political actors in mobilization for political activism. The paper show how various factors (deprivation, resources, subjective perceptions, knowledge, efficacy, social capital) mediate/moderate the effect that political context has on political activism. The panel combines papers using both, qualitative and quantitative approaches.
