Protests and demonstrations are instruments used to effect political change outside 'normal' electoral or bureaucratic methods, particularly in states without formal political processes of civic representation or expression. They can provoke extensive shifts in policy,  changes of government,  state violence, political fragmentation and new forms of collaboration. Even where the aims of protesters are not clearly met, studying protests provides considerable insights into people's day to day political experiences as well as into the very concepts of democracy,  state power, and the political more generally.  This course will explore these insights by examining protests around the world from Brazil to Russia and the Middle East.nd other tutors
