Abstract

This contribution is based on two assumptions. First, Silke Roth argues that it is important to understand the participation in social movements as inextricably linked with rather than separate from other life spheres. She therefore suggests, to put more emphasis on family, neighbourhood and the workplace as sites of social engagement. Second, she argues that social movement research should make use of a biographical perspective which allows capturing the succession of various forms of participation – whether in protests, grassroots organisations, projects, citizens’ action groups or in more traditional organisations (for example political parties, trade unions or government agencies). She identifies five types of key figures – the broker, the femocrat, the knowledge producer, the consultant and the founder – which due to the multiple overlaps between paid and unpaid work can only be analytically separated
