Social movements – Overview

The aim of our research will be to:

- To undertake innovative research on the multiple ways through which transnational social movements on migration and anti-racism (such as Frassanito Network, or the European Social Forum) are organised, coordinated and expand through digital interaction.

- To identify gender relations within those collectively organised digital networks, such as migrant women’s organisations and networks acting within broader transnational campaigns and movements.

- To explore an alternative theoretical framework for an understanding of new social movements as they are organised and spread at a transnational and even global level addressing the potentialities offered by multiple means and usages of new media (e.g. wikis, P2P, etc).
