About the research

This study is about social movement protests / mobilisations in the UK and Europe. It shall collect data through surveys of participants in three or four large-scale protest events per year in the period 2009-2012 in the UK. But it shall address three key research questions by analysing data from a combined data set of country-cases in the broader project: the Netherlands, Belgium, Sweden, Spain, Switzerland, and the UK.
