A grounded theory of protest movement continuity
Teo, Melissa & Loosemore, Martin (2009) A grounded theory of protest movement continuity. In Dainty, A.R.J. (Ed.) Proceedings on the 25th Annual ARCOM Conference, Association of Researchers in Construction Management (ARCOM), United Kingdom, pp. 43-51.
Using a thematic story telling approach which draws on ethnographic method, a grounded theory of protest movement continuity is presented. The grounded theory draws from theories and activist stories relating to the facilitative role of movement networks, social contagion theory and the cultural experience of activism. It highlights the contagious influence of protest networks in maintaining protest continuity over time and how this leads to common perceptions of development risk and opportunity within communities. It also reveals how communities use collective values and identity, social capital, emotional dynamics and symbolic artifacts to maintain protest continuity.
