Social movement activity in Latin America has exploded over the last two decades. We will examine the demands for a reconceptualization of democracy, alliances between social movements and left-leaning governments; inequalities and tensions whithin movements; and the transnational nature of this movement activity. As we discuss each of these themes, you will learn about active social movements in Latin America today, what they are struggling for, what challenges they have confronted and how they have changed society and politics.
