Summary
This book brings together twelve scholars from various universities and research centres in Europe and Canada. All look at developments in the collective action of marginalized and/or disadvantaged people such as Gypsies, migrants, cleaners, or unemployed people in contemporary West European societies. The authors analyze how these people organize and mobilize within or across countries such as Belgium, Finland, France, Germany, Great Britain, Ireland, or Italy. They note that although the collective actions of marginalized and/or disadvantaged people are not necessarily unusual, all these nationally based or cross-national mobilizations have in common the fact that many of these people seek to overcome various cultural, social, and political obstacles, act collectively, and intervene in the public space. The various contributors in this book observe that the mobilizations of the marginalized and/or disadvantaged are often linked to new patterns and forms of social and political marginalization and inequality. The contributors analyze, therefore, these emerging patterns and they investigate the extent to which marginalized and/or disadvantaged people are of political significance in many of today's West European societies. --
