Deliverables

Home > Our Project > Deliverables

We are committed to reaching out and working with the community in their own spaces. Social movements produce their own unique knowledge, and our plan is to establish a flow of knowledge between scholars and social movement organizations. We will present our findings at meetings of local SMOs.  Our goal is to stimulate discussion on the relationship between the state and SMOs, and identify common ground and shared priorities. We will ask our respective institutions to sponsor these events. Once it is complete, the database and website will be valuable community resources. SMOs can use the site to learn about funding opportunities; draw inspiration from other SMOs’ projects; enhance institutional memory; and share knowledge using the discussion forums. The media can also use the site as a resource for background on social protest, and our knowledge mobilization plan includes writing op-eds. The site will be regularly updated as our scholarship evolves. Our primary deliverables also include future articles in academic journals, monographs and edited collections.
