Summary The current growth of incidents of public disorder around the world can be seen as symptomatic of major transformations in a globalized society, government, and technology. But while disorder is routinely perceived as a disturbing phenomenon, it can also be a catalyst for positive transformation and regeneration. As social media is increasingly used as a platform for mobilization and organization, the local disorder may spread outward through national borders, receiving international coverage and visibility as well as triggering a domino effect of global unrest.
