The Development and Negotiation of Frames During Non-sectarian Mobilizations in Lebanon

Research output: Contribution to journal/Conference contribution in journal/Contribution to newspaperJournal articleResearchpeer-review

This paper explores the processes whereby organizers of non-sectarian mobilizations frame grievances against the sectarian system in Lebanon. While previous studies on non-sectarian mobilizations have mainly focused on explaining how the sectarian system in Lebanon constrains the outcomes of non-sectarian mobilizations, the paper draws attention to the agency of activists during the process of mobilizations. It analyzes framing processes in two cases: the Hirak, a protest movement which took place in the summer of 2015, and Beirut Madinati (Beirut My City), a list which competed in Beirut’s municipal elections in 2016.
