Environmental Protest in Western Europe

The incidence of environmental protest in Sweden is examined by means of an analysis of environmental protest events reported in Dagens Nyheter during the years 1988–97. Although nationally reported protest declined in the early years of the decade, it stabilized thereafter. Given changes in the newspaper, its declining interest in protest, and increasing interest in ‘green business’, it is likely that the actual incidence of protest is understated by this source. Nevertheless, it appears that protests around urban issues declined steadily whereas those concerning animal rights increased, with a modest number of violent protests mainly associated with the latter. Otherwise, environmental protest in Sweden appears to have remained relatively subdued and moderate, as befits a country where environmentalism has been unusually pervasively incorporated.
