Psicologia Social e Movimentos Sociais: Uma Revisão Contextualizada

Psicologia e Saber Social 01/2013; 1(2):163.

ABSTRACT Os novos movimentos sociais se expressam na forma de mobilizações conhecidas como ocupações e marchas, a fim de demarcar orientações ideológicas e/ou políticas. Marchas pelo direito das mulheres sobre os seus corpos (Marcha das Vadias), das trabalhadoras do campo (Marcha das Margaridas), da população negra (Marcha Zumbi), de lésbicas, gays, bissexuais, travestis e transexuais (Paradas do Orgulho LGBT), de grupos religiosos (Marcha para Jesus), pela liberalização do uso de drogas (Marcha da Maconha), são cada vez mais visíveis, e mais do que apenas configurar um quadro de movimentação massiva na defesa de ideologias, sistemas de crenças ou direitos, elas podem ser entendidas como fenômenos de cunho psicossocial que promovem o fortalecimento de identidades sociais degradadas e a reconstrução de grupos sociais historicamente discriminados. São ações coletivas, no espaço público das ruas, que mantêm uma relação dinâmica e conflituosa entre os grupos e a sociedade, reivindicando vida plena, nas ruas. A presente revisão de bibliografia visa apresentar olhares e métodos da Psicologia Social frente aos movimentos sociais, apresentando como pano de fundo para a análise contextualizada da aplicação desses saberes e modos de fazer, mobilizações com base nas dimensões de gênero, orientação sexual e raça/etnia realizadas no Brasil contemporâneo.

    ABSTRACT: Resource mobilization theorists have nearly abandoned social-psychological analysis of social movements. In this paper a fresh case is made for social psychology. New insights in psychology are combined with resource mobilization theory in an attempt to overcome the weaknesses of traditional social-psychological approaches to social movements. Expectancy-value theory is applied to movement participation and mobilization. It is assumed that the willingness to participate in a social movement is a function of the perceived costs and benefits of participation. Collective and selective incentives are discussed. Expectations about the behavior of others are introduced as an important expansion of expectancy-value theory to make this framework applicable to movement participation. The theory is applied to mobilization campaigns of the labor movement, and empirically tested in a longitudinal study of a campaign during the 1979 collective negotiations in the Netherlands. Outcomes support the theory. Theoretical and practical implications are discussed

    ABSTRACT: Determinants of collective behavior, as suggested by the social identity or self-categorization approach and social movement research, were examined in 2 field studies. Study 1 was conducted in the context of the older people's movement in Germany and Study 2 in the context of the gay movement in the United States. Both studies yielded similar results pointing to 2 independent pathways to willingness to participate in collective action; one is based on cost-benefit calculations (including normative considerations), and the other is based on collective identification as an activist. Study 2 included an experimental manipulation and provided evidence for the causal role of collective identification as an activist. Directions for future research on the proposed dual-pathway model are suggested. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2012 APA, all rights reserved)
