Abstract [en]

Since the beginning of 2000 a wind energy project has been planned to be constructed in the indigenous village San Dionisio del Mar. A resistance movement in the village was born and in 2013 they managed to expulse the Spanish wind energy company Mareña Renovables. Using the method process tracing, a qualitative study is presented with an aim to find out what it was that gave the resistance movement its strength. Drawing on New Social Movement Theory and Resource Mobilization Theory, three hypotheses are tested. This to contribute to the study on why some resistance movements succeed and why some do not.
