Paths of Sustainability, Ethical Consumption and Participation. Towards a New Model of Citizenship

This event will focus on forms of political participation that are related to consumerism and production.

Picture description

This event will focus on forms of political participation that are related to consumerism and production. From boycotting to ‘buycotting’, from new forms of rurality to zero kilometer producer-consumer networks, these new forms of political engagement are spreading on a massive scale and represent new ways through which every day economic practices are being questioned and challenged by a growing number of ‘critical’ citizens, families, local communities and entrepreneurs.

On March 9th, the docu-movie ‘The True Cost’ (2015) will tell us a story about the clothes we wear, the people who make them and the human and environmental impact of the ‘fast clothing’ industry.

Start at 3:30PMwith a roundtable, movie screening 5:00PM – 16:30PM

Solidarity Mobilizations in the ‘Refugee Crisis’. Contentious Moves

Donatella della Porta (ed.)
This edited volume ddresses a gap in research on social movements that has disregarded the origins of discontent and overlooks protest as a resource of the powerless; it offers insight into how the movement of refugees across the European Union and elsewhere activates political opportunities; it explores claims to citizenship made by refugees within processes of knowledge production and the mobilization of emotions

I movimenti animalisti in Italia. Strategie, politiche e pratiche di attivismo.

Niccolò Bertuzzi
Il volume si focalizza su coloro che in Italia si occupano di benessere, cura, diritti e liberazione animale all'interno di contesti organizzativi. Grazie alla somministrazione di una survey, interviste agli attivisti e analisi dei frame, emergono una notevole varietà di strategie, pratiche e riferimenti valoriali, la contemporanea presenza di lobby e conflitto, e la natura complessa di un fenomeno al centro dell’attenzione mediatica ma ancora poco studiato in termini sociologici.
