Soziale Bewegungen im Post-Apartheid-Südafrika

  • Ercüment ÇelikEmail author


Unter Berücksichtigung des historischen Hintergrunds wird in diesem Kapitel die Entstehung von sozialen Bewegungen im demokratischen Südafrika erkundet und aufgezeigt, wo sie Gemeinsamkeiten und Unterschiede gegenüber früheren sozialen Bewegungen aufweisen. In diesem Zusammenhang wird diskutiert, wie die Entstehung von sozialen Bewegungen mit dem politischen und wirtschaftlichen Übergang verbunden ist. Zuvor wird jedoch der Fokus auf einige theoretische Ansätze der sozialen Bewegungsforschung gelenkt, um deren Herangehensweise und Fragestellungen darzulegen.
