Territorial movements: a new manifestation of social conflict?

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract


The essay reflects on territorial movements as a specific "genus" of social movements, which are distinguished by birth, subjects and objectives. The author, after tracing the features of territorial movements and their ability to constitute an alternative vision with respect to the hegemonic model (also through a focus on the No Tav movement), highlights how the conflict on the territory and for the territory, can be read as a new representation of social conflict. On the one hand, the commodified territory becomes the object of predation in a context of neoliberal governmental rationality; on the other, the territory can offer the space for a new sociality that claims the centrality of human person and his needs.
