About this Dataset
The main aim of the ‘Far-right mobilisations in Great Britain’ (FRGB) protest events dataset is to map different protest actions, which might range from public assemblies and marches to severe types of hate crime and terrorist incidents, in Great Britain in the period 2009-2020.
We have conducted Protest Event Analysis (PEA), a key method of social movement research, in order to collect information on the following seven variables: 1) Date, 2) Location, 3) Social Movement Organisation, 4) Action form, 5) Reason of mobilisation, 6) Number of participants, and 7) Number of arrests. The data collection is based on the content analysis of local and national newspapers (retrieved from LexisNexis), anti-racist websites, and independent reports.
