Studenteropgave: Fagmodulprojekt


The aim of this project is to examine the causes for the emergence of Tunisian Revolution of 2011. This was done by applying the analytical framework developed by McAdam, McCarthy, and Zald (1996), which focuses on the relationship between the concepts political opportunity, framing strategy and mobilizing structures. Through our investigation, we have found that in the case of Tunisia these concepts are interrelated. Furthermore, it became evident that the changes in the political structures created opportunities that allowed the protesters to develop framing strategies and mobilization structures for the revolution.
