What kind of movements are generic movements?

Answer:

  • These are long-term movements and involve more than one issue.
  • The environmental movements and the women’s movements are examples of such movements.
  • There is no single organisation that controls or guides such movements.
  • Environmental movement is a label for a large number of organisations and issue-specific movements.
  • All of these have separate organisations, independent leadership and often different views on policy-related matters.
  • Yet all of these share a broad objective and have a similar approach. That is why they are called ‘generic movements’.
