The Animal Protection Movement in Modern Megapolis: the Structure and Ways of Resource Mobilization
10
2019
Based on the theoretical model synthesizing the key concepts of resource Mobilization and New social movements paradigms, as well as based on empirical data collected by the semi-structured interview method, the author analyzes the structure and practices of activists representing different types of animal protection identities in terms of their strategic focus on the extraction of certain resources necessary to solve the problem of stray animal’s welfare.

Achieving the goal of understanding interdependence of the animal protection movement structure and ways of resources mobilizing, allows us to draw conclusions about the features of the horizontal structure of the animal protection movement and the resource availability of the studied community: its material, human, cultural, moral and socio-organizational resources.

The author proposes to differentiate the actors of the studied movement from the point of view of the level of the tasks they solve (system or local), and, starting from this structuring criterion, consider mobilization strategies in terms of effectiveness for the whole movement.

From a practical point of view, public demonstration of the research results will allow representatives of the animal protection movement to see the practices of their colleagues who achieve systemic success, as well as realize themselves as part of a large, dynamically developing network of interactions. From a scientific point of view, this work will contribute new knowledge to sociology of social movements industry.

The master's thesis consists of an introduction, three chapters, conclusion, bibliography with 48 sources, and an Appendix.
