The internet could have been purpose-built for fostering the growth
of the social movements and citizen initiatives which have had such
a significant impact on the political landscape since the 1990s. In
"Cyberprotest" the contributors explore the effects of this synergy
between ICTs (Information Communication Technologies) and people
power, analysing the implications for politics and social policy at
both a national and a global level. Through a number of different
international examples answers are sought to questions such as: to
what extent and in what forms do social movements use ICTs?; how do
new ICTs facilitate new patterns and forms of citizen
mobilization?; how does this use affect the relationship between
social movements and their members?; how do ICTs change the way
social movement organizations communicate with each other?; and how
do they affect the way these movements mobilize and intervene in
public debates and political conflicts?
