  • Suitable for anyone interested in social movements, protests, civil society, political participation and political parties both in Europe and Latin America
  • Presents original research about contemporary experiences of Latin American movements and politics in several different countries

This edited collection presents original and compelling research about contemporary experiences of Latin American movements and politics in several countries. The book proposes a theoretical framework that conceptualises different mediation processes that emerge between cyberdemocracy and the emancipation practices of new social movements.

Additionally, this volume presents some Latin American practices and experiences that are autonomously and by using self-management–creating other identities and social spaces on the margins of and against the neoliberal system through the use of digital technology.

This book will be of great interest to scholars of media and social movements studies as well as of contemporary politics.
