About this item

The recent Arab uprisings across North Africa and the Middle East have attracted scholarly attention as popular movements with novel transnational and religious dimensions. What became known as the Arab Spring can be read as part of a broader politics of normative defiance of predominant political and economic orders. From religious militations, to Indigenous sovereign claims, to mobilizations of refugees and migrants in camps and urban settings, it may be possible to speak, more generally, of contemporary insurrectional politics as social movements that emanate from normative positions that pose significant challenges to systemic orders as we know them. The purpose of this book is (a) to identify the material shifts giving rise to insurrectional politics, (b) to reflect on key arenas of insurrection, (c) to map/chart the impact of insurrectional movements on institutions and relations of political governance at national and global levels, and (d) to explore analytics that will advance theorization of insurrectional politics. The book aims to generate new knowledge on systemic institutional transformations spanning the national and global by bringing together scholars whose work combines theoretical inquiry with empirical analysis of contemporary insurrectional politics. This title was previously published as a special issue of Globalizations.
