Extra-Parliamentarianism is a form of political expression that seeks to bring about social or political change by influencing knowledge, attitudes, and behaviours of the public or the policies of an organization or institution. Extra-Parliamentarianism has been associated with popular movements excluded from the formal political process.
Extra-Parliamentarianism is the rejection of the parliamentary process and older attitudes of formal representation. It has flourished throughout the development of capitalism , particularly during times of political, social and economic crisis.
