About this item
Conflict in the Middle East, human rights violations, and religious turmoil plague the world now more than ever before. As populations seek more and more democratic methods of governance, a trend which often results in revolution, it is important for lawmakers to look toward the future when instituting or revising public policy. Politics and Social Activism: Concepts, Methodologies, Tools, and Applications explores the concept of civil disobedience and how social and political upheaval has characterized the modern sociopolitical system. From the Arab Spring to the Egyptian uprising, this three-volume reference book includes chapters on topics including social media, democratic policies, online activism, urbanism, leadership, and socioeconomic disparity and is a timely resource for policymakers, social scientists, government officials, and students of politics and political science.
