PADM 521—Fall 2011
Professor Mario Rivera
Emergence is likely when members perceive a present threat, when the social climate is supportive of emergence, when social ties are in place – at least to some degree – before the mobilization, when the social setting legitimizes the groups, and when resources are available (Quarantelli et al., 1983). Compare conditions in the Katrina, Integrating Housing, and Drilling cases. Did networks emerge to address the challenges that arose. What conditions fostered and constrained this emergence?
