Nina is writing a book on how transnational advocacy is changing in the digital era. She is interested in how a common form of digital advocacy organization has spread worldwide from the US, to the UK, from Poland to New Zealand. Activists in these countries have established multi-issue, membership driven, progressive organizations inspired by MoveOn.org. Her research explores how these nationally-based organizations campaign and collaborate transnationally, with a particular focus on when they campaign collectively on international issues. As part of this research she has written on the distinctiveness of this form of advocacy, the challenges of mobilizing people for progressive causes in the populist era, and how these groups have campaigned for refugee rights.
