Individual Patterns of Political Mobilization in Historical Conservation Movement in St. Petersburg
Politics and Governance
This work examines individual patterns of politicization and depolitization on the materials of the local movement in St. Petersburg. Frame theory and the theory of "involvement regimes is chosen as a theoretical framework. The focus is on the process of agenda-setting, as well as the possibility of its politicization. In this paper, the goal was to identify how the transition from local civil initiatives to collective political action takes place. It was crucial to analyze how activists understand the categories of "political" and "public" as opposed to "personal" and "private." It was hypothesized that changes in the urban environment are received as an intrusion into the "close" space and, therefore, have greater opportunities for mobilization. As a result, several patterns were pointed out, depending on the degree of involvement in civic activity.
