Social Movements Conflicts and Change cover

"Research in Social Movements, Conflicts and Change" (RSMCC) publishes peer-reviewed, original research that has helped define and advance scholarship in social movements, conflict resolution, and social and political change for more than 40 years. The series was established in 1977 by Louis Kriesberg, professor emeritus of sociology, who edited volumes 1-14 from 1978 - 1992.

"Research in Social Movements, Conflicts and Change" generates new knowledge about central aspects of human life: why and how we organize into movements for political and social change, and why and how we engage social conflicts and build peace. Social movement scholars have used the RSMCC series to connect their research with theories of peacebuilding and nonviolence while other scholars have used the series to explore new frontiers in conflict resolution and patterns of violent non-state actors.

The series has provided an important home for interdisciplinary and international scholarship at the forefront of research and theory development related to societies' struggles over resources, power, and agency.
