On September 27-29 Professors Jackie Smith and Melanie Hughes, along with their collaborators, will host a workshop with more than a dozen researchers from seven different countries where we will analyze new datasets they have compiled on transnational social movement organizations and networks. International scholars, including many junior researchers, will examine how social movements are responding to a variety of changes in the global system, including the end of the Cold War, climate change, and growing incidence of protests in locations around the world. The workshop will generate an edited volume and support ongoing international research collaboration.
