Abstract
This panel invites papers that compare either grassroots resistance/political elite campaigns in different countries or compare bottom-up and top-down campaigns in a single country, how they differ and how they reinforce each other. The idea behind this panel is to map the political landscape (actors, institutions, and interests) of actors that try to halt or even roll back the transition towards sustainable energy systems.
