In her new book Transnational Advocacy in the Digital Era, Think Global, Act Local, Nina Hall explores the role of digital advocacy organizations and how digital technologies are changing transnational advocacy networks, and examines these organizations' campaigns on climate, trade and refugees' rights. Nina Hall will discuss her research into this topic and how these organizations have harnessed digitally networked power and can quickly respond to the most salient issues of the day, and mobilize large memberships, to put pressure on politicians. She finds that these organizations operate in a globalized world but tackle transnational problems by focusing on national targets. This new generation of activists have formed a strong transnational network, but still see the state as the locus of power.
Transnational Advocacy in the Digital Era, Think Global, Act Local is available for purchase directly from Oxford University Press.
