Abstract

Citizens may respond to economic crises and to policy responses to such crises in a variety of ways. This special issue focuses on collective responses as they express themselves in the public domain, in the form of social movements or other types of interventions. The special issue originates in a large-scale comparative research project funded by the European Commission and titles “Living with Hard Times: How Citizens React to Economic Crises and Their Social and Political Consequences” (LIVEWHAT). The eight articles all use a common dataset and adopt a common method, known as political claims analysis, which has proven fruitful in previous work on social movements and contentious politics, consisting in retrieving interventions in the public domain on a given issue, or range of issues, drawing from media sources, most often newspapers. The data stem from a systematic content analysis of newspapers in each of the countries under study.
Los ciudadanos responden a las crisis economicas y a las respuestas politicas a tales crisis en una variedad de formas. Este numero especial se enfoca en las respuestas colectivas tal como son expresadas en el dominio publico en la forma de movimientos sociales u otros tipos de intervencion. El numero especial tiene su origen en un proyecto de investigacion comparativo de gran escala financiado por la Comision Europea y tiene por titulo Viviendo en tiempos duros: Como reaccionan los ciudadanos a las crisis economicas y a sus consecuencias politicas y sociales (LIVEWHAT por sus siglas en ingles). Los ocho articulos usan el mismo conjunto de datos y adoptan un metodo comun conocido como analisis de reclamos politicos que ha probado ser muy fructifero en trabajos previos sobre movimientos sociales y politica contenciosa, consistiendo en busqueda de intervenciones en el dominio publico por asunto, o rango de asuntos, dependiendo de fuentes mediaticas, mas usualmente prensa. Los datos parten de un analisis de contenido sistematico de los periodicos en cada una de las naciones bajo estudio.
