Appel à communication: Australian Political Studies Association (APSA)
Synopsis: This workshop is designed to:

- provoke theoretical reflection upon, and analysis of, deep-seated changes in social movement forms, foci, and behaviour in the environmental domain in response to broad societal transformations relating to climate change, fiscal crises and economic inequality, the increasing criminalisation of activism, attention to supply chains, shifting modes of communication, and more.
- consider challenges for the public and political mobilization and representation of environmental issues, and for the study of such movements, in the first half of the 21st century,
- create a space for dialogue and debate about these changes and challenges between academics, activists, and policy practitioners in the environment movement, relevant government agencies, and the formal political sphere,
- attract media attention to, and generate public discussion about, the changing nature and institutional dimensions of environmental politics, and
- explore the development of collaborative groups and potential funding for projects.

Paper Proposals: We welcome proposals and presentations that reflect on a broad range of topics related to the future of environmental activism and movements. Activists and agency practitioners, as well as academics, are encouraged to propose a contribution.
