Why do social movements emerge in particular countries? How do social movement actors relate to one another across borders, and how effective are they at promoting social change? To what extent are these movements context specific or transnational? How do they construct or broker models of knowledge and action? Building on the insights from INGS2601 Transnational Actors and Networks, students will apply a interdisciplinary lens to social movements in Latin America, the Middle East, North Africa and Southeast Asia, four key regions within the Global South.
