Activists Beyond Borders: Advocacy Networks in International Politics

by

Activists Beyond Borders: Advocacy Networks in International Politics Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Margaret E. Keck and Kathryn Sikkink examine a type of pressure group that has been largely ignored by political analysts: networks of activists that coalesce and operate across national frontiers. Their targets may be international organizations or the policies of particular states. Historical examples of such transborder alliances include anti-slavery and woman suffrage campaigns. In the past two decades, transnational activism has had a significant impact in human rights, especially in Latin America, and advocacy networks have strongly influenced environmental politics as well. The authors also examine the emergence of an international campaign around violence against women.<P>The conventions of the nation-state have shaped our contemporary understanding of the process and politics of social movements. Keck and Sikkink sketch for the first time the dynamics of emergence, strategies, and impact of activists from different nationalities working together on particular issues. This eagerly awaited work will alter the way scholars conceptualize the making of international society and the practice of international politics.

Synopsis:

The authors examine a type of pressure group they see as having been ignored by political analysts: networks of activists that coalesce and operate across national frontiers and whose targets may be international organizations or the policies of particular states.
