Report
BACK
 

From Madrid to Cairo, Tel Aviv, Rome and New York, protests have erupted across the globe against economic instability, political unaccountability and corruption, and characterized by a prevailing sense of disillusionment. What are the defining characteristics of these movements? Where are the ideas coming from and how are they being expressed? How influential is social media in their structure and philosophy? In what direction are they going? 


A distinguished group of experts including - Alessandro Pizzorno, Donatella Della Porta, Nadia Urbinati, Daniela Coli, Alexander Trechsel, Augusto Valeriani, Claudia Vago, Camilo Cristancho, William Klein, Claudius Wagemann and Cristian Vaccari - addressed these questions and reflected on the potential outcomes for the demands for reform, ultimately questioning the role that dissent plays in contemporary democracies.
