Description With our European collaborators, we have developed protocols for the collection of protest survey data.
We have assessed the relationship between formal politics and unconventional politics, concluding that the two are related. Street demonstrators are often MORE connected to formal politics than non-demonstrators, and this pattern is even more pronounced for those who protest the most frequently and intensely.
We also discovered that climate change activists frame their message as part of a broader discourse for global justice.
Exploitation Route We have produced summary reports of all the UK protests we surveyed, which will be useful for all NGOs / social movement organisations staging street demonstrations.
