The Role of Online Global Group Petitions in Campaigning
What is it about?
The article focuses on a frequently used but under-researched protest media through which transnational movement networks express their collective demands – what are termed here as ’Global Group Petitions’ (GGPs), and activists themselves call ’sign-on statements’ or ’joint statements’. GGPs are online petitions typically framed as ’global’ and linking sometimes hundreds of advocacy groups behind a common set of critical statements contesting global politics.
Why is it important?
The article is of interest to those interested in trade politics but also the more general practices of advocacy groups and campaigning strategies that utilize the Internet.
