Citizenship and the Politics of Contention
This Summer School aims to deepen students' knowledge about citizenship and the politics of contention and to strengthen their engagement with research questions and their capacity to deliver fully-fledged papers and presentations.
Prof. Marco Giugni, University of Geneva
Prof. Manlio Cinalli, University of Milan
The course is structured around five more specific issues relating to the general topic of the Summer School and their implications for citizenship:
Contention in democracies vs autocracies
Individual vs collective forms of contention
Particularistic vs universalist contention
Online vs offline contention
Organized vs spontaneous contention
Each topic will be addressed on a different weekday. Teaching is based on lectures, assigned readings, group work, presentations, and discussions. Students will be assessed based on a written assignment and the related presentation.
