Collective Action in a Multi-Level Setting: Feminist Organizing at the Regional and International Level

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Get this Document | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Collective action increasingly takes place in a multi-level setting where non-governmental organizations (NGOs) no longer only encounter opportunities at the national level, but also at the regional and international level. While scholars are cognizant of these ongoing changes, we still know very little about how the presence of different levels affects the strategies and tactics of non-state actors. This paper will help fill this gap in the literature drawing on various elements from the social movement theory and empirical evidence from women's organizations mobilizing around violence against women and reproductive rights. It shows how NGOs strategically exploit opportunities at both the regional as well as the international level and adjust their framing activities to varying institutional contexts to mobilize broad-based support for their ideas.
