For a long time social movement theories were practically synonymous of North American and European social movement theories. Although there was never a completely uncritical reception of these theories in Latin America, Africa and Asia, in recent decades the theorization of social practices and experiences of contestation of these regions has moved towards a more original, consistent and less Eurocentric perspective. At the same time, frames of interpretation and theoretical frameworks begin to move toward an increasingly global dialogue. Somehow, this is not unique to the debate on social movements and accompanies a broader movement in the social sciences. This session aims to present theoretical proposals to interpret collective action, social and cultural contentious expressions and social movements, with emphasis on the Global South. However, unlike some contemporary interpretations, the goal is not discard “Northern” theories and experiences, but weaving a critical and global dialogue based on the consideration of the specificities of the local joints and societies; the diversity of political cultures and national/regional traditions of thoughts; the historical and spatial constructions of social conflict, and so on. Critical, reflexive and contextual theories are especially welcome.
