Social and political movements are still the main determinants for the analyses of the political scenes in the modern world. In addition to traditional political movements (such as conservative, liberal, social democratic or populist ones) new social movements – like feminist, pacifist or environmental social movement – emerge and gain political and cultural importance. Members of civil societies exercise their political rights and constantly associate in many organizations of various political purposes. Therefore, there are questions about the role of various social and political movements and their activities, ideological transformation, organizational problems, issues of leadership, education and how they communicate with their audiences. In other words: what are the opportunities and expectations of social and political movements in the increasingly complex world? We are looking forward to discuss these important issues with colleagues around the world.
