Why is it important?

This work contributes to the scarce literature on collective resistance by highlighting multiple less prototypical forms of resistance.


Writing this qualitative paper was a great pleasure. This paper gave me a lot of clarity and understanding about variety of ways in which collective resistance operates in different contexts. I believe, it is an important paper focussing on those types of resistance which are usually not addressed in mainstream social psychology literature on collective resistance.
