The media as a collection of societal institution that are concerned with production and dissemination of all forms of knowledge requires wider academic attention. In recent years media has become significant potential political actor. There are several reasons for media becoming a tool for political communication. The decline of family as a primary agent of political socialization, proliferation of television channels and the marketisation of media platforms together constitute a “mediated politics” in the world.

In contemporary world, our perception of democracy, election, public opinion, social capital, public sphere and even protest consciousness are being mediated. This seminar cast fresh thoughts and reminds us the desirability of a vibrant civil society in the media age of our time.

Protest reflects the key aspect of the relationship between the state and society. State is responsible for formulating and carrying out policies for society. State may lack the resources to meet the demands and expectations of various competing social groups. That may lead to anger among some groups in the society, which can take the shape of protest movement. Protest arises from disagreement over limited issues, such as opposition to particular policies of a government, or antagonisms between groups competing for political influence.So how movement arises and how various groups participate in it is an important area of intellectual pursuit.Students of political science and teachers should have great mastery over the area so as to get a clear understanding of the society.It is so important to understand how to approach a social movement and what are basic theoretical approach to social movements.
