Sociology seminar - What are the true colours of the Yellow Vests? A sociological exploration of the Yellow Vests movement in France and in Finland

Aktiviteetti: Puhe- tai esitystyypitKutsuesitelmä


The Yellow Vests movement is one of the most enthralling, multifaceted and long-lasting protest movements of recent times. Started in France, it spread all over the world with high-vis jackets becoming an easily identifiable and transferable symbol of protest. But a protest against what and whom?

From a social and economic justice movement, it quickly evolved into a diverse constellation of mobilisations against a broader ‘societal crisis’. In her talk, Gwenaëlle Bauvois explores how the Yellow Vests - in France and beyond - became entangled with far-right, conspiracy and anti-vaxx movements. Drawing from her research, she will focus on the case study of the Finnish Yellow Vests.
