Chapman University, USA

RSMCC offers scholars an opportunity to submit their research for possible inclusion as a chapter in one of the leading sources of research and theory building in the field. This volume will be unthematic, i.e., submissions appropriate to any of the three broad foci reflected in the Research in Social Movements, Conflicts and Change (RSMCC) series title will be considered.

About the Series

RSMCC is a fully peer-reviewed series of original research that has been published annually for over 40 years. We continue to publish the work of many of the leading scholars in social movements, social change, nonviolent action, and peace and conflict studies.

Although RSMCC enjoys a wide library subscription base for the book versions, all volumes are published not only in book form but are also available online through Emerald Social Science eBook Series Collection via subscribing libraries or individual subscriptions. This ensures wider distribution and easier access to your scholarship while maintaining the book series at the same time.
This title is indexed in Scopus and volumes from this series are included in the Thomson Reuters Book Citation Index.
