Social Movements and Social Problems in Contemporary Spain

The approach will be twofold: on one hand, it will be carried out from a Sociology and Applied Anthropology theoretical perspective; on the other, it will familiarize students with the point of view of the citizens' movements with regular encounters with activists and leaders of these organizations.
