What do ‘activism’ and ‘being an activist’ mean in today’s political context? What are the different options that citizen groups and (activist) social movements have to organize around the topics they consider urgent? How to organize a sound and constructive movement or action group? What can be learnt from the past’s social movements and mobilizations?  How can theories on social movements, activism and resistance be useful for organizing an impactful action? How to (be)come an agent of change? How to combine activism and academia and/or be an activist scholar? 

These questions are central to the capita selecta course “Resistance, Power and Movements”, a collaboration between OtherWise and the Sociology of Development and Change group.
