From Tahrir Square to Ferguson : Social Networks as Facilitators of Social Movements, Hardback Book

From Tahrir Square to Ferguson : Social Networks as Facilitators of Social Movements Hardback

Edited by Juliet Dee

Part of the Communication Law series

Description

The last several years have seen mass uprisings and dynamic social movements across the globe, from the onset of the Arab Spring in 2011, to the Black Lives Matter movement following Michael Brown's death in Ferguson, Missouri in 2014.

There is no doubt that social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter accelerated and facilitated these uprisings, providing a way for people to organize and express themselves despite government repression.

From Tahrir Square to Ferguson: Social Networks as Facilitators of Social Movements attempts to answer the question of whether these movements could have succeeded before the advent of the Internet age.

From political protest to regime change, social movements have become increasingly digital.

Taking on the current political climate from an international perspective, From Tahrir Square to Ferguson: Social Networks as Facilitators of Social Movements attempts to address the issues of a growing social media audience facing a wide variety of social and political issues.
