Joost de Moor is a postdoctoral Research Associate at the School of Politics, Philosophy, International Relations, and Environment (SPIRE). Here, he works for the Centre for Understanding Sustainable Prosperity (CUSP) where he focuses on how grassroots movements pursue sustainability through prefigurative strategies.
He recently defended his PhD thesis at the University of Antwerp, titled The Two-Dimensional Structure of Political Opportunities, which aims to explain how (perceptions of) political opportunities explain citizens’ political participation and the strategies of social movements.
Joost’s research focuses on activism within the environmental movement, the climate movement, and the squatting movement. He has (forthcoming) publications in Mobilization, International Journal of Urban and Regional Research, Parliamentary Affairs, and Acta Politica, and has recently written two book chapters on the climate change movement at COP21.
Joost is the co-convenor of the ECPR Standing Group on Participation and Mobilization.
