Large protest movements proceed in cycles, with alternating periods of mobilization and demobilization. This chapter shows how the interplay of general and country-specific movement characteristics, international relations, and national politics account for the dynamics of mobilization. It concentrates on the protests against the deployment of cruise missiles in Europe and that against the First War in Iraq. The differences observed between these two protest waves suggest that a strong coalition in one cycle does not guarantee an equally strong coalition in the next, nor does a high mobilization level in one cycle guarantee high mobilization levels in the next.

Keywords:   mobilization, demobilization, country-specific movement characteristics, international relations, national politics, protest waves
