Abstract:Olson's (1965) collective action dilemma confronts rational choice theorists with several hurdles to explain the emergence of social movements. On the example of Deutsche Wohnen und Co. enteignen, a framework on the basis of Finkel et al. (1989) and Klandermans (1984) is tested that expects goal support, personal efficacy, group efficacy and selective benefits to overcome the dilemma and appropriately explain people’s motivation to participate. For this undertaking, a door-to-door survey on Deutsche Wohnen tenants in Berlin Kreuzberg, an online survey on citizens in Berlin, several interviews with tenants, and an expert interview were conducted. Multiple regression and grounded theory method were used to analyse the variables’ impact. Overall, the qualitative findings corroborate the model and empirically observe further theoretical extensions that Klandermans and Finkel have pursued. People’s personal socialization and opportunity structures are identified as additional relevant factors.
