Seeing Citizen Action through an ‘Unruly’ Lens
AbstractAkshay Khanna applies a new lens – the ‘unruly’ – to the uprising and riots that have recently occurred all over the world. He argues that by conceptualizing the term ‘unruly politics’ it becomes easier to understand the changes that have happened in politics and citizen participation in the last few years. Although all these movements are different and linked to the contexts in which they originated, there is a commonality that can be traced back in the unruly character of the politics involved. The ultimate aim of the article is to ask: What are the new modalities of political action that these events have generated, and how have these events reconfigured political spaces?
