Abstract

Resource mobilization is the process through which actors in society access resources necessary to pursue their goals. Resources in this definition can be understood as a source of supply or support that an actor can draw upon to accomplish its objectives. Mobilization refers to the process by which an actor secures access and control over the resources needed for action. This entry provides a brief overview of the resource mobilization literature and points to the central role of the concept in political science, sociology, and more recently, organization theory.
