Situational Breakdowns

Understanding Protest Violence and other Surprising Outcomes

Anne Nassauer

Oxford Studies in Culture and Politics

  • Develops the counterintuitive argument that situational dynamics, not motivations, strategies, and cultural factors, are key to surprising outcomes
  • Combines data in a novel way, using video and documentary sources to reconstruct, in unprecedented detail, what happens during protests
  • Provides real-life practical advice how to avoid violence in protest marches and other situations
  • Claims that violence is rare, humans face an inhibition to violence, and violence only breaks out if specific situational patterns occur
