ABOUT

The MOBILISE project asks: When there is discontent, why do some people protest while others cross borders?

PROJECT SUMMARY

Our central research question asks: when the state fails to respond to the economic or political needs of citizens, why do some people mobilise by protesting in the streets while others ‘mobilise’ by crossing borders? And how do the choices of protest and out-migration relate to each other? 

TEAM

The MOBILISE project brings together political scientists and sociologists, leading scholars of migration and of political protest.

EVENTS

MOBILISE will host three dissemination workshops for different academic and non- academic audiences at regular intervals throughout the project.

PAST PROJECTS

The team has a proven track record of successful collaboration.

ADVISORY BOARD

The core research team is supported by a large Advisory Board (AB) composed of world leading scholars of protest and migration in our origin and destination countries.
