A timely publication to shed light on the link between social movements that formed as a consequence of the 2008 financial crash and the referendums’ dynamic and results.
Out now “Social movements and referendum from below”, the first book that bridges the gap between social movement studies and research on direct democracy. It draws on social movement theory to understand the nature of popular mobilisation in referendums using unique case studies such as the referendum on independence in Scotland, the consultations on independence in Catalonia, the Italian referendum on water, the referendum on the Troika proposals in Greece and the referendum on the debt repayment in Iceland.
