Like Touraine, Melucci uses the term social movement as an analytical concept, but unlike Touraine he does not see social movements as mere expressions of societal cleavage. On the contrary, he was very interested in the empirical variety of protest mobilizations, and in the not-so-visible everyday practices of social-movement activists.

But while protesters may come from one generation it is never a whole generation that protests. Those engaged in contentious interactions are always only a minority of the age cohort as a whole. A strong generational model is therefore not well suited to explain protest because it would always have to explain the lack of protest in the majority of persons belonging to one generation. Other studies using the generational concept do not usually refer to an age cohort but to a notion of activist generations, characterized by shared experiences and not primarily by shared age.
