How successful are mass-mobilized protests in changing public policy in Chile?
I am going to focus on Chile’s modern mass mobilization movements. For example in 2006 and 2011, Chile experienced some of the largest social movements to address the growing economic inequality. These protests included the takeover of public schools, mass gathering of students and workers, and other forms of civil disobedience. The focus of my research will be based on how effective these mass-mobilization tactics at promoting any institutional changes in Chile for students and workers.
