Embedding "political consumerism" : a conceptual critique

Balsiger, Philip

(EUI Working Papers ; 08)

This paper develops a theoretically and empirically founded critique of the concept of political consumerism. In the course of the last decade, political consumerism was “discovered” as a new form of political participation, revealing the politics behind products. Surveys show that individuals more and more often use their consumption to voice political concerns, boycotting products or...

Making Political Consumers: The Tactical Action Repertoire of a Campaign for Clean Clothes

Balsiger, Philip

In: Social Movement Studies, 2010, vol. 9, no. 3, p. 311-329

These developments are usually seen as a transformation of forms of political action towards more individualized participation forms. Little attention has focused on the role of social movement activity in this transformation. In this...

Moral Struggles in Markets : The Fight against Battery Cages and the Rise of Cage-Free Eggs in Switzerland

Balsiger, Philip

In: European Journal of Sociology / Archives Européennes de Sociologie, 2016, vol. 57, no. 3, p. 419-450

Les pratiques dans les marchés sont largement réglementées et parfois contestées sur la base de jugements moraux. Des entrepreneurs moraux remettent alors en cause des marchés et des pratiques marchandes tandis que des entreprises et des associations industrielles les défendent, ce qui résulte des luttes morales opposant différents ordres de grandeur. Sur la base d’une étude de cas...

Competing Tactics : How the Interplay of Tactical Approaches Shapes

Balsiger, Philip

In: MPIfG Discussion Paper, 2012, vol. 12, no. 9, p. 1-23

Social movements use a variety of tactical approaches to change markets. Through a case study of ethical fashion in Switzerland, this paper looks at how the interplay between different tactical approaches pursued by movement actors shapes the growth of the ethical clothing market. Most studies on the influence of social movements look at single tactical approaches, and rarely discuss tactical...
