Since it emerged in 2011 the Occupy movement has captured considerable attention and generated considerable critical and timely dialogue on a variety of issues. One of the many avenues for exploration is regarding contemporary public engagement in movements such as Occupy. Using Occupy as a point of departure for discussion this chapter raises a set of questions regarding possible barriers to public engagement within movements such as Occupy in terms of state responses to these movements and emerging trends in the relationship between activism and new social media.
