One of the top concerns arising from this crisis has been a concern that absent key leaders more repressive @osce member states could push through their long-held desire to muzzle the participation of independent, critical #civilsociety voices in the organization (...)

📢🔔Some good news amidst the pandemic:

Our article, "Protesting Parties: a comparative analysis", co-authored with Swen Hutter @swenhutter, is now published open-access in Party Politics:

journals.sagepub.com/doi/10.1177/13…

These are some of the key contributions we make (thread 🧵1/8)
Bridging the literature on party competition and protest politics, we examine the extent to which parties mobilize in the #protest arena, the types of protest events they sponsor, and the profile of the typical #ProtestingParty [2/8]
The analysis is based on protest events (@PoldemData) in 30 European countries between 2000 and 2015.
We show that party involvement depends on the dynamics in the protest arena and on context differences, such as the age of #democracy and the strength of #CivilSociety [3/8]

Yesterday, #cdnmedia rolled out the #TalyaDavidson troll job w/out hesitation. Journos are trained to spot lies like this.
I don’t like the term “#FakeNews,” but the shoe fits.
Either 🇨🇦 MSM are incredibly unprofessional, or it’s part of what $600,000,000 buys you. 👎🤦‍♀️

The problem with the media pushing this story with zero skepticism, similar to what happened when they uncritically pushed the false hijab ripping story, is that even if they correct themselves and admit they were fooled, the damage is done. That is if they were genuinely fooled.
Millions of CDNs saw #TalyaDavidson pretend to be an @AndrewScheer supporter. Only a fraction of them will uncover the truth. The damage is done, thanks to journos like @davidakin giving the act legs. As the old adage goes, “falsehood flies, and truth comes limping after it.”🗣🦵
