Militancia en el movimiento ambientalista del sur de Bogotá: el caso de Casa Useme
TS 0001 2010
Vargas Mariño, Andrés
The social networks theory is one of the possible answers to the question of why the people join into social movements and participate in its struggles. However, the approaches that have been done to this phenomena by the social networks scholars, tend to be inflexible because they make a distinction only between the ones who militate and the ones who don t, leaving outside of the spectrum different kinds of activism that are in between. This case study tries to answer this question by introducing the concept of compromise, which is an attempt to explain the diversity of militancy in a social movement, taking on account the social networks theory. Additionally, this research tries to approach the unknown issue of the environmentalism in south Bogota. This movement is young and in process of expansion; also it has a lot of supporters and activists. Still, this kind of environmentalism is not well known by the scholars and by the people that aren t inhabitants of this location.
