Protest Public Relations
Communicating dissent and activism
edited by Ana Adi, published by Routledge
PR remains seen only as the defender of corporate and capitalist interests, and therefore resistant to outside voices such as activists, NGOs, union members, protesters and whistle-blowers. Drawing on contributions from around the world to examine the concepts and practice of “activist,” “protest” and “dissent” public relations, this book challenges this view.
Using a range of international examples, it explores the changing nature of protest and its relationship with PR and provides a radical analysis of the communication strategies and tactics of social movements and activist groups and their campaigns.
