Soziale Bewegungen in Zeiten von Covid-19 zwischen Anpassung, Innovation und Brüchen

Maria del Carmen Mayer, Verena Stern and Priska Daphi

Zusammenfassung

Der Artikel bietet einen Überblick über den noch jungen, internationalen Forschungsstand zum Umgang Sozialer Bewegungen mit der Covid-19 Pandemie. Bewegungen haben digitale Aktionsformen stärker aufgenommen und zum Teil mit analogen Formen verbunden. Der Straßenprotest ist aber nicht verschwunden, sondern hat sich den Pandemie-Bedingungen angepasst. Thematisch hat die Pandemie Probleme neu aufgeworfen oder verstärkt. Insbesondere Gewalt gegen Frauen und soziale Ungleichheit erhielten neue Aufmerksamkeit, aber auch rechte Akteur*innen konnten mobilisieren. Die vor der Pandemie prominenten Klimaproteste wiederum mussten ihre Proteste an die nun fehlende öffentliche Aufmerksamkeit anpassen. Wir zeigen die Änderungen, aber auch die Kontinuitäten innerhalb Sozialer Bewegungen in der Pandemie auf.

Abstract

This article offers an overview of the still young, international state of research on how social movements have dealt with the Covid-19 pandemic. Movements have made greater use of digital forms of action and combined them in in part with analog ones. However, street protest has not disappeared but has adapted to pandemic conditions. Thematically, the pandemic has raised new or intensified problems. In particular, violence against women and social inequality received new attention, but right-wing actors were also able to mobilize. Climate protests, on the other hand, which gained prominence before the pandemic, now had to adapt to a lack of public attention. We show the changes, but also the continuities within social movements in the pandemic.
