    The Austrian Protest Arena in the 21st Century: Issues, Actors, Targets, and Repertoires
    (FWF Der Wissenschaftsfonds - Project 28180)

    Political protest has become a typical feature of contemporary democracies. The project aims at analysing the amount and especially the characteristics of political protest in Austria for the period 1998–2016. Taking Meyer and Tarrow’s movement society thesis as starting point, the project focuses on four characteristics of the protest arena: the issues expressed, the actors involved, the targets confronted, and the modes of action (repertoires) used. It will be tested whether political protest – as postulated by the movement society thesis – has indeed become a phenomenon that transcends specific types of issues and actors traditionally associated with this arena, whether the targets of protest increasingly go beyond state authorities, and whether the activists predominantly use moderate repertoires.
