Framing Corkerhill: identity, agency, and injustice

Andy Robinson

Received 12 April 1999; in revised form 7 July 1999

Abstract. The author seeks to examine the roots of community mobilisation against contested developments. By utilising the concept of collective action frames he attempts to demonstrate that ideas of injustice, identity, and agency are crucial in explaining the development of community opposition. Furthermore, he shows that spatial concepts of exclusion, segregation, and isolation are central to the development of these elements of opposition and therefore important explanatory factors when accounting for grass-roots collective action.
