Example text

New social movement theory has been particularly critical of earlier approaches such as resource mobilization for placing too great an emphasis on structure and politics (Williams 2007). There was a recognition that movements need resources and opportunities to articulate grievances and pursue change—as such, that earlier work had laid useful foundations—but that there is a much more complex interplay between various factors that single-issue theories focused on, for example, resources, had failed to account for.

Collective behavior approaches have also been heavily critiqued for the assumption that social integration is a “normal” state and that collective action can only be viewed as an anomaly or abnormal state (Buechler 2007). This has implied that social movements are unnatural or abnormal manifestations of human irrationality, and later authors, as I shall shortly discuss, have rejected this implication. The assumption of irrationality inherent in the work of authors such as Kornhauser, Durkheim, and Ortega has been a particular concern in the traditions that have followed.

This is indeed at the heart of activist citizenship, as we shall see. Resource Mobilization Emerging from critiques of the collective behavior tradition in the 1970s, resource mobilization theories were the earliest to systematically incorporate explicit notions of agency and rationality into analyses of social movements. They built on earlier notions of grievance but argued that collective action is a normal response made by rational actors in the face of these grievances and that grievances alone are not predictors of movements.
