The Role of Online and Offline Mobilization in the 2017 Moscow Political Protests
Sociology
(Bachelor’s programme)
2018
The purpose if this research is to empirically evaluate the mobilization capacity of the Internet in light of several political protests in Russia taking place in 2017-2018. The data was obtained from the social network website VK. Then, various social network analysis methods including ERG models were used to analyze the data. The aspects explored are protest organization and the role of different approaches to political mobilization. I am finding that none of the key players in protest organization seem to be involved with formal political organizations. In addition, this research suggests that online mobilization is significantly more effective than offline mobilization.
