The MOBILISE project asks: When there is discontent, why do some people protest while others cross borders?
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?
The MOBILISE project brings together political scientists and sociologists, leading scholars of migration and of political protest.
MOBILISE will host three dissemination workshops for different academic and non- academic audiences at regular intervals throughout the project.
The team has a proven track record of successful collaboration.
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.
