Resumen

ASUN, Rodrigo  y  ZUNIGA, Claudia. Why participate? Explaining regionalist social protest from two psychosocial models. Psicoperspectivas [online]. 2013, vol.12, n.2, pp.38-50. ISSN 0718-6924.  http://dx.doi.org/10.5027/psicoperspectivas-Vol12-Issue2-fulltext-260.

The objective of present study was to assess the capability of the Social Identity Model (MISM) and of the Psychosocial Motives Model (MMP) to explain participation in regionalist social protests in Chile. We applied a survey in a representative sample of 1200 subjects over 18 years old living in four regions of the country. Results from multiple linear regression analyses revealed that MMP has a greater predictive capability than MISM (it explains 36% versus 4.9% of the variance). In MMP the "objective" and "social” motives are particularly relevant. Identification with the region does not predict participation in regionalist protests, in contrast to the value given to the objectives of the mobilization, which shows up as highly associated with them. The importance of studying primary social networks to explain social protest behavior is discussed.

Palabras clave : social movements; social protest; social identity; psychosocial motives; regionalism.
