Content

This unit critically examines the nature, effectiveness and implications of transnational activism in world politics. In the first part of the unit, students analyse debates around global agenda setting and transnational activists. Conceptual issues around strategies, effectiveness, state-activist interaction and the politics of representation are then applied to the practice of international relations through a series of case studies in the second part of the unit.
