Protest campaigns linked to episodes of democratization are often described as
sudden: surprise, excitement, and innovation are terms often used to describe
eventful democratization, as times are perceived as exceptional. Della Porta
suggests that one major transformation during those events is what we can
conceptualize as time intensification. She will discuss the impact of relational
processes of time intensification and then time normalization through the analysis
of activists’ perception of time.

Donatella della Porta  is professor of Political Science at the Scuola Normale
Superiore in Florence. She is the Dean of the Institute of Humanities and Social
Sciences and directs the Center on Social Movement Studies.

Organizers:
Prof. Dr. Cilja Harders,  Director of the Center for Middle Eastern and North African Politics, FU Berlin.

Prof. Dr. Jochen Roose, Professor for Social Sciences at the University of Wroclaw and researcher at the Institute for Protest and Social Movement Studies, Berlin.

  • Das Repertoire an anderen Protest- und Widerstandsmöglichkeiten ist bei Weitem noch nicht ausgereizt. Damit meine ich nicht nur fröhlich-freundliche Straßenproteste, sondern auch zivilen Ungehorsam. Sowohl in Qualität als auch in Quantität ist das Spektrum da noch nicht ausgeschöpft.
