The growing interdependence on a global scale constitutes a challenge for both the mobilization of social movements and social movement theory. This volume, now available in paperback, attempts to adjust the perspective of the 'political process' approach to a world in which political opportunities, mobilizing structures, framing processes and collective action of social movements are no longer confined to national political contexts. The contributors discuss various implications of a globalizing world on the mobilization for collective action within national contexts (cross-national diffusion of protest, inter-national opportunities and constraints for national mobilization, national social movements engaged in two-level games, as well as new forms of mobilization beyond the nation-state) as well as the creation of transnational mobilizing structures, collective action for supranational issues and the mobilization of social movements in the supranational arena.
