This concluding chapter presents further analyses of the chapters discussed so far and offers theoretical proposals based on each of their insights. It shows that antirepression work produces key analyses about how social control functions. This is possible because antirepression collects a particular kind of data through time and space and can therefore analyze the police operation in total and compare it with other operations. Moreover, it returns to an analysis of space in conducting social movements, as well as the political attempts to disrupt or close these spaces off from dissenters. On a broader scale, the chapter argues that there is a larger trend geared toward criminalizing dissent, especially dissent aiming toward social change, and that this is indicative of prevailing institutions working against the foundation of democracy.

Keywords:   antirepression, theoretical proposals, social control, dissent, social change, democracy, social movements
