Abstract

Over the past decade, numerous social movements and protests have arisen in Southeast Europe, addressing a wide range of issues, from challenging austerity measures to reclaiming public space in cities.
 
Regardless of the varying degrees of success they have enjoyed, social movements in SEE have demonstrated that authoritarian actors in the region can be challenged from within, and not just by external actors such as the EU.
 
In general, the emergence of social movements invites scholars to pay due attention to the fragile and shaky foundations of regional "stabilitocracies”: these may not be as stable as local leaders want to portray.
 
In the seminar, our guests, three young yet well-established scholars, will present their recent research on concrete cases of popular mobilization that have flourished in three states of the region (Croatia, Serbia and Bosnia-Herzegovina), and their relation to the local autocratization process.
 
Please consider joining us in any case: general methodological and theoretical issues will also be touched upon.
