PO L IT IC S AND PR O T EST CYCLES 19 III T A C T IC A L IN N O V A T IO N AND C O M PETITIV E M O B IL IZ A T IO N The inclusion of ad hoc assemblies, interest groups, and institutional groups within the social movement sector makes it clear that we shall be talking about a sector that is internally differentiated, nonautonomous from politics and institutions, and internally competi­ tive. These three aspects of the movement sector will help us to explain the dynamics of the cycle. For the competition between movement organizers and established interest groups for people’s support leads different groups to adopt different strategies of mobilization and forms of interaction with elites and authorities.

Though such groups work within institutions during quieter times, in protest waves they compete with the movement organizations by adopting their tactics, albeit in more conventional form. For instance, consider the university student movement that we shall analyse in Chapter 6. It developed in the mid-1960s within educational institutions, out of the protests by old student associa­ tions against educational reform. In its course, ad hoc assemblies and mass demonstrations developed, along with formal social move­ ment organizations.
