The new GRIP-CMI project addresses the recent and ongoing protests and revolutionary movements that challenge political inequality through re-negotiating citizenship. In this project we ask how re-negotiations of citizenship are central to such critical historical moments; both as a tool of repression, but also as a response of those repressed.
The Global Research Programme on Inequality (GRIP) along with partners from Chr. Michelsen Institute (CMI) have been granted funding for a new collaborative project; Political Protests and New Forms of Citizenship. This project will focus on political inequalities and changing forms of citizenship in politically charged and volatile contexts, and we now warmly invite contributions to a miniseries on the topic.
GRIP encourages submissions on new configurations and terrain of citizenship practices in post-revolutionary contexts as well as analyses of political protests and their aftermath. This is a unique opportunity to provide novel insights into new vocabulary of justice, innovative practices of political engagement and changing forms of citizenship.

We welcome contributions in written format (2000-4000 words), as well as interviews, videos and contributions to our podcast, Unequal Worlds. We have also previously published miniseries on various topics, which can be of inspiration for contributors. Please see Inequality in the (Post-) Pandemic City and the GRIP Covid-19 Miniseries.
The Political Protests and New Forms of Citizenship miniseries will be published continuously throughout 2022. If you are interested in contributing please fill out the form following the link below:
