Abstract

Drawing on recent approaches in sociology of violence and research on social movements, this Panel examines how contextual factors and meso-level processual mechanisms interact with micro-level situational dynamics, as well as the role of emotional and interpretative processes during moments of collective action. It invites contributions on a broad range of phenomena of violence during – and beyond – demonstrations and other protest events. The focus of this Panel will be on militant protest as well as repressive protest policing.
