Hanna Bäck on protest participation

Hanna Bäck has, together with Emma Bäck and David Sivén, co-authored the article ”Why engage in collective action? The conditional effect of social support and efficacy on protest participation”, which was recently published in “Basic and Applied Social Psychology”.

The article focuses on answering the question of why people engage in protest activities. The authors suggest that intentions to engage in protest activities come from the perception that the action is an efficient way to affect policy, but is also dependent upon the level of others’ engagement. The main hypothesis is that lower social support could spur intentions to engage since the individual may then perceive that his or her own participation is necessary for social change. The empirical study, based on three experiments, support this argument.
