Michael Neuber and Beth Gharrity Gardner: How do social movements move in pandemic contexts? Examining climate justice mobilizations in times of COVID-19

In their lecture from March 10, 2021, Michael Neuber und Beth Gharrity Gardner addressed the question of how movement mobilization has shifted in the context of COVID-19. To explore this issue, they focused on the Fridays for Future climate movement as their empirical case. The talk reviews key findings on changes in the social composition, motives and attitudes of protest participants using new, time series data from surveys collected at the Global Climate Strikes in 2019 and 2020 in Berlin.

Beth Gharrity Gardner is a postdoctoral Research Associate in the unit “Politische Soziologie und Sozialpolitik” at the Humboldt University Berlin.

Michael Neuber is a visiting scholar at the Department of Social Movements, Technology, Conflict at the Zentrum Technik und Gesellschaft, Technische Universit├Ąt Berlin.
