Abstract: Amidst the proliferation of works directed to elucidate the relationship between social media and the recent social movements and uprisings around the world in the last few years, this paper presents a meta-analysis of 56 papers from communication-specific academic databases, from authors and about cases from all continents, which discuss that relationship, aiming to provide a transversal view through a content analysis of the selected sample. Results show suggestive biases that should serve as warning to the area’s researchers, from some more obvious relationships such as method x results, up to some less intuitive relationships. In the end it is opened an invitation to expand this study including other areas and/or deepening some of the present findings in order to ratify or eventually rectify them to, one way or another, advance further on the matter.

Abstract: This paper examines the impact of protest-related arrests on future willingness to engage in protest based on data drawn from qualitative interviews with 27 randomly selected protesters who were arrested during the 2004 RNC. The paper begins by discussing the length and detention conditions for arrestees, which situates the reactions of arrestees to their confinement experiences. The paper then examines interview data, identifying and explaining trends that exist between the likelihood of future protest participation, and: (1) whether the participant intended/expected to be arrested or not; (2) severity of arrest and confinement experience; (3) case disposition (found guilty, case dismissed, adjournment in contemplation of dismissal, etc.); (4) prior arrest experiences; and (5) prior protest participation. Findings show that surprisingly, not all of these factors shaped willingness to protest in the future, but some markedly affect stated intentions. Finally, theoretical implications are discussed and findings are situated in terms of their generalizability for all RNC arrestees and other protest arrestees using quantitative data on all 2004 RNC arrestees.

Abstract: Few authors have explored the bridge between economic reform and economic protest in Latin America. A great deal of the literature has focused on the political effects of economic reform including its effect on the party system, the executive, elections and other political variables. However, the literature is sparse regarding the nexus between economic protest and economic reforms. This study is part of a larger project that intends to correct this paucity in the literature on the developing world. This study focuses on Latin America, specifically examining the development of economic protest in Colombia, Venezuela and Argentina in the last decade. These three countries were chosen randomly for the pilot study. Using data collected from a variety of news sources, the paper will develop a theoretical model for understanding the causes of economic protests within the context of the developing world. The study is designed to contrast the data derived from the Inter-American Development Bank on economic reform and compare it to the incidence of protest in eleven Latin American countries. Data for instances of protest has been collected from Keesings World Wide. We examine the upward and downward trends of protest as they relate to economic and political change on a yearly basis for thirty years. A model to examine economic protest and economic reform is necessary because certain variables may make a region more tolerant of economic reforms than others. In addition, economic reform can affect the mobilized conflict in Latin America by giving rise to new collective action problems.
