Sammanfattning (abstract):
In a complex and globalised world the issue of power and resistance needs to be raised continually. Resistance, as a practice aimed at inequalities, whatever they may be, is not a marginal phenomenon, even though it may vary in size and shape dramatically. On the 15th of February 2003 millions of people around the world hit the streets in a manifestation against the war in Iraq. The protest was coordinated from ‘below’, by grass-root movements displaying their ability to form transnational networks. But how could the protest evolve like this in the first place? This cannot be understood as merely mass behaviour, but rather, the research agenda of Resistance studies would be looking into how social networks are shaped, how conflict and pragmatic consensus are negotiated, and what kinds of dispersive mechanisms operating to reduce the complexity along a multiplicity of actors, synchronizing them into one of the largest demonstrations in history.
