4). 1 Social Structure, Political Cleavages, and Collective Action The effects of socioeconomic characteristics upon social and political conflicts have often been addressed by looking at political cleavages; that is, at the main politicized conflict lines (Lipset and Rokkan 1967). Political cleavages have traditionally been associated with a model of collective action in which actors: (1) fought against each other in order to protect material or political interests; and (2) defined themselves (as members of a class, a faction, or a national group) in relation to these interests.

This concept takes into account the greater organizational rigidity and the more hierarchical structure that these organizations display by comparison with social movement networks (Robbins 1988: 150–5). It also recognizes the higher degree of social control that is exerted on members. In contrast, what the terms “public interest group” and “sect” do not really capture are the interaction processes through which actors with different identities and orientations come to elaborate a shared system of beliefs and a sense of belonging, which far exceeds the boundaries of 26 THE STUDY OF SOCIAL MOVEMENTS any single group or organization, while maintaining at the same time their specificity and distinctive traits.

Cultural conflict and symbolic challenges often take forms, such as the practice of specific lifestyles, the adoption or certain clothes or haircut, the adoption of rituals, that can only be regarded as protest if we stretch the concept to a very considerable degree (Snow 2005). Moreover, even in the political realm it is increasingly debatable whether protest can still be considered an “unconventional,” or even violent or “confrontational,” activity. Various forms of political protest have increasingly become part of the consolidated repertoire of collective action, at least in Western democracies.
