Working Paper #276
Diese Studie vom September 2013 analysiert 843 Proteste, die zwischen Januar 2006 und Juli 2013 in 84 Ländern aufgetreten sind, was über 90% der Weltbevölkerung entspricht. Die Studie konzentriert sich auf: (i) die bedeutendsten Missstände, welche die Proteste in der Welt antreiben, (ii) wer demonstriert, welche Protestmethoden genutzt werden, und gegen wen diese gerichtet sind, (iii) kurzfristige Erfolge, sowie die Unterdrückung sozialer Bewegungen und (iv) die wichtigsten politischen Forderungen der weltweiten Demonstranten. Die Arbeit fordert politische Entscheidungsträger auf, darauf zu achten, ob Aussagen nur durch Frustration und Gewalt artikuliert oder kommuniziert werden.
