FSD2371 Interviews of Finnish Activists 2000-2001Detailed description (collection | citation | publications)
Rasimus, Ari (University of Tampere. Department of Sociology and Social Psychology)
The survey studied the opinions of activists (active from the mid-1990s to the early 2000s) about the organisations and activities they took part in. The respondents were members of Justice for Animals (Oikeutta Eläimille) and/or Friends of the Earth (Maan Ystävät). They were asked about their background and history with activist organisations, how they had ended up in them, and how they saw the future of their organisations. They were also asked about how they felt about certain ways of influencing society. In addition, their attitudes towards anarchism, major party politics, and the influence of the EU on activism were probed.
