Abstract

On the 17th October, over 20,000 people marched on Parliament Square in London. Why do people take to the streets, and does it make a difference? Interwoven issues of grievances, efficacy, identity, emotions and social embeddedness help answer why. However, there’s a gap in our understanding of when and how demonstrations affect political agendas. Here, Jacquelien van Stekelenburg identifies key mechanisms which have both direct and indirect effects on important players.
