Abstract

While political participation of citizens has become a "new norm" (Saurugger) throughout all areas of politics, political parties increasingly seek to provide experiences usually related with social movements. On the other hand, movements growing into political parties or movement-parties quenstion the seperation of institutionalized politics on the one hand and an elite challenging contention by movements on the other. This panel looks into the processes within political parties and social movements that remould the established understandings and categorizations of participation and political decision-making.
