Introduction



The Globalisation, Marginalisation and New Social Movements project was a 3 year project between 2003 and 2006. It was hosted jointly by the Centre for Civil Society (CCS) and the School of Development Studies, and was funded by Atlantic Philanthropies and the Ford Foundation. The project is structured around 16 case studies of different social movements which were conducted between June 2003 and July 2004. This work is available in the 2006 volume, Voices of Protest, and in the form of longer research reports below.

A book entitled Voices of Protest Social Movements in Post-Apartheid South Africa has been published by UKZN Press.
