Description

Conflict in the Middle East, human rights violations, and religious turmoil plague the world now more than ever before. As populations seek more and more democratic methods of governance, a trend which often results in revolution, it is important for lawmakers to look toward the future when instituting or revising public policy.

Politics and Social Activism: Concepts, Methodologies, Tools, and Applications explores the concept of civil disobedience and how social and political upheaval has characterized the modern sociopolitical system. From the Arab Spring to the Egyptian uprising, this three-volume reference book includes chapters on topics including social media, democratic policies, online activism, urbanism, leadership, and socioeconomic disparity and is a timely resource for policymakers, social scientists, government officials, and students of politics and political science.
