Abstract: Social movements have been major actors in processes of emancipation and democratization for a long time. This paper emerged from a Hivos research project carried out in 2008 and 2009. It confirms that social movements are moving targets, hard to pin down by supporters, with many dimensions yet unexplored by academics. Movements cannot be built or engineered, but outside actors can play a constructive role, especially by promoting an enabling environment in which movements can flourish and expand their outreach.
