Defensive mobilization: Popular movements against economic adjustment policies in Latin America

Abstract:

In the current wave of defensive collective action across Latin America in response to
neoliberal globalization, working-class groups appear most frequently in the documented
protest events. The new wave of popular movement activity emerged in the region in the
late 1990s and early twenty-first century and is driven by the erosion of the economic
and social benefits previously available to the popular classes during the period of stateled
development.
