|English title||Changes or Cross-National Differences? Effects of Economic Inequality on Protest Participation|
|Author(s)||Marta Joanna Kolczynska|
Objective: The association between economic inequality and protest participation has attracted much scholarly attention, and yet empirical tests of this association remain unsatisfactory. Methods: Applying a multilevel model to the eight-wave repeated cross-sectional data set from the European Social Survey, analyses presented in this article distinguish between cross-national and longitudinal differences in economic inequality to investigate their effects on protest participation. Results: Most of the observed effect of economic inequality on participation is due to between-country differences rather than within-country changes in inequality. Conclusion: The results do not support theories according to which protest participation is causally related to economic inequality.
