The introductory chapter discusses the concepts of legacy and memory and suggests ways to use them in an analysis of long-term effects of movement participation in the transition to democracy on future generations of movements. First, it looks at the ways in which paths of transitions, with particular attention to movement participation in them, have long-term effects on movements to come by creating institutional change. Second, it considers some ways of looking at past eventful protests as mnemonic resources and constraints for social movements. After doing that, the chapter also introduces the research design and presents the remainder of the volume.
