De Vry University Contestation and Social Movements Discussion Post

Question Description

I’m working on a sociology discussion question and need an explanation to help me study.

Define contestation. Discuss what this means both in theory (definition) and in practice citing recent events or examples in your analysis.

As part of your analysis, respond to the following questions.

  • What does contestation mean in practice for social movements?
  • How do environmental movements confront contestation?
  • Analyze the role of contestation in that movement’s success (or lack thereof) or broadening of appeal
