Politics of Dissent


Martin Bak Jørgensen and Óscar García Agustín

There are alternatives to neoliberal market economies: basic income, the money of the common and degrowth. This study highlights the potential of dissent from the initial questioning of the dominant system to the creation of new political agendas. It discusses the multiple manifestations of dissent and their contributions to shaping political alternatives; it also takes a closer look at organizations and the challenge they face trying to establish forms of resistance. The struggles of current social movements in Brazil, Turkey, Nigeria, Spain and the US exemplify practices of dissent.

The Postmodern Prince: The Political Articulation of Social Dissent


This chapter investigates the organising processes and discursive articulations enabling or translating the ‘passage from the social to the political’. It shows how social movements in three settings have developed from bottom-up social platforms to establishing a type of political party. The authors investigate how a new type of political party creates new articulations in the space between the social and political arenas, and attempts to re-politicize the political arena and challenge existing political regimes. In the chapter, they look at recently established parties in Slovenia, Spain and the UK.
