The End of Euphoria? Protest movements from Tahrir to Occupy Wall Street three years on
Three years ago, several protest movements captivated the attention of social scientists and the media alike. Observers were quick in connecting the uprisings in several Middle Eastern countries, while also pointing to a seemingly global surge of protest movements reflected in the Occupy movement and the sit-in in Madrid’s Puerta del Sol Square. Today, the euphoria for these protests has cooled down considerably. Under the impression of recent events, commentators have taken a more critical stance towards the durability of the protests or lost interest in the transformative processes that seemed so inevitable three years ago. How can we make sense of these fluctuations in academic and media interest? Did the transnational imaginaries of protest movements become frustrated once confronted with local realities?
