Comparative Research on the Contextual Conditions of Protest Making in Asia and Latin America

Are Latin-Americans more likely to protest their governments than Asians? This research recasts this cross-regional question by configurating ideal types of the state in relation to protest participation from rich liter-ture which has argued multiple patterns of state-society relationship. The hypotheses project four ideal types, namely, fearful autocrats, paternalistic mediators, challenged icons, and po-rous enforcers, which predict divergent patterns of inciting or deterring people to/from protests against the state and non-state actors and tests it thourhg survey experiments in Cambodia, Mongolia, and Bolivia in 2018.
