Community-based Learning and Social Movements

Policy Press

The Far Right has made a play of appealing to people’s emotions, focusing on people’s anxieties and fears, along with widespread feelings of envy and resentment. Psycho-social approaches can provide ways of understanding the roots of these emotions - and how to work with them - unpacking people’s hostilities towards ‘the other’ as the basis for building more hopeful, rather than more hateful, futures. Having summarised the findings from psycho-social studies the chapter concludes with some examples where communities and social movements have been working with emotions more hopefully, including via strategies to tackle racism in football.

Keywords:   Psycho-social approaches, Hope Not Hate, ‘Kick it out’, Show Racism the Red Card
