The functionalist perspective looks at the big picture, focusing on the way that all aspects of society are integral to the continued health and viability of the whole.
The symbolic interaction perspective studies the day-to-day interaction of social movements, the meanings individuals attach to involvement in such movements, and the individual experience of social change. I am one of those who was also hugely influenced by Kuyper in college (Cedarville) in the 70's---through a philosophy professor as well.
Or, simply interested in how these talented and dedicated professionals contribute to society? The protests were sparked in part by the revolution in Tunisia, and, in turn, they inspired demonstrations throughout the Middle East in Libya, Syria, and beyond. These groups might be attempting to create change (Occupy Wall Street, Arab Spring), to resist change (anti-globalization movement), or to provide a political voice to those otherwise disenfranchised (civil rights movements).
This disaster exemplifies how a change in the environment, coupled with the use of technology to fix that change, combined with anti-oil sentiment in social movements and social institutions, led to changes in offshore oil drilling policies.
When studying social movements, a functionalist might focus on why social movements develop, why they continue to exist, and what social purposes they serve. Someone applying the conflict perspective would likely be interested in how social movements are generated through systematic inequality, and how social change is constant, speedy, and unavoidable.

This wave of protest movements traveled across national borders and seemed to spread like wildfire. But although they may be left-wing or right-wing, radical or conservative, highly organized or very diffused, they are all examples of social movements. Social movements, along with technology, social institutions, population, and environmental changes, create social change. Subsequently, in an effort to support the Gulf Coast’s rebuilding efforts, new changes occurred. For example, movements must change their goals as initial aims are met or they risk dissolution. In fact, the conflict that this perspective sees as inherent in social relations drives social change. For example, social movements might be generated through a feeling of deprivation or discontent, but people might actually join social movements for a variety of reasons that have nothing to do with the cause. Through case studies, personal stories, and exercises, this social-work text helps you apply the concepts and truly understand what it means to be a social worker.
There have been countless causes and factors in play in these protests and revolutions, but many have noted the internet-savvy youth of these countries. From grassroots marketing campaigns that promote consumption of local seafood to municipal governments needing to coordinate with federal cleanups, organizations develop and shift to meet the changing needs of the society. Several organizations associated with the anti-polio industry folded after the creation of an effective vaccine that made the disease virtually disappear.
For example, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) was founded in 1908. They might want to feel important, or they know someone in the movement they want to support, or they just want to be a part of something.

This demanded of us to evaluate the books and authors that were influential in our particular classrooms and careers with faith-based critical thinking (which both dismayed and delighted some of our teachers, not to mention our parents) and changed our prayers a bit, allowing us to dream of offering transforming initiatives that could emerge out of communities of shared discourse about the Bible and life.
