In recent years, protest camps have become increasingly prominent, seen in mass protests around the world, with camps erected everywhere from a park in Istanbul to a Mexico City street. Though these movements, like the countless others that have adopted this tactic, have differing goals, they’ve all found protest camps to be an effective tactic for getting and holding attention from media and government alike. This collection offers a number of interdisciplinary case studies of protest camps as unique organizational forms that transcend the contexts of particular social movements, looking at relations, connections, and similarities and differences among camps from widely varied locations and movements. Written by a wide range of experts in the field, the book offers a critical assessment of current protest events and will help better understanding of new global forms of democracy in action.
