Call for Papers: Special Issue on ‘Protest, Social Movements, and Global
Democracy since 2011’
Volume 39 of Research in Social Movements, Conflicts and Change
Guest edited by Thomas Davies (City University London), Holly Ryan
(Crick Centre, University of Sheffield), and Alejandro Peña (University
of York)
In light of the limited achievements of the Arab Spring and other
pro‐democracy movements, volume 39 seeks to examine and unpack arguments
that protests since 2011 represent both a new phase and new prospects
for democratic mobilization. The volume engages with new theoretical and
methodological perspectives and illuminates novel aspects of
transnational social movement dynamics, such as the evolving role of
information technology, deterritorialisation and government
counter‐responses. Submissions are invited addressing any one or more of
these themes and should conform to the following guidelines:

Each paper must be submitted by 1 August 2015 and should be between 8000
and 11000 words long including all notes and references.  Titles should
be 8-10 words long, and there should also be an abstract of up to 200
words, plus 5-6 keywords beneath the abstract. Manuscripts should be
double-spaced. Any standard social science in-text citation style is
sufficient for initial submissions, although final versions will need to
be APA format. For peer review, all acknowledgements and author
self–identifications should be removed from the in-text citations as
well from the bibliography.
Manuscripts should be in Microsoft Word format and sent to all of the
following:(thomas.davies.1 /at/
<mailto:(thomas.davies.1 /at/>; (Holly.Ryan.1 /at/
<mailto:(Holly.Ryan.1 /at/>; (alejandro.pena /at/
<mailto:(alejandro.pena /at/>

The deadline for receipt of full papers is *1 August 2015.*
