With the onset of the Arab Spring, social movements have once more become an important research topic in Political Science. Because of the importance of twitter, facebook and other social online platform in those protests, researchers have focused in particular on these new techologies and on networks created through online interaction. However, this panel is also open for applications of network analytic methods to the study of social movements and collective action from a range of perspectives, from mechanisms of individual recruitment to inter-organizational alliances and coalitions, to networks of events. Submissions of papers that include a comparative dimension and/or an analysis of network evolution over time are particularly encouraged.
