Abstract: Who does mobilize in armed conflict? And why? Even though the literature disagrees on the “who” and the “why”, available contributions usually tend to assume that actors’ features, motivations and logics of mobilization are homogenous across individuals and phases of conflict. We aim to relax the assumption that actors are all the same, defining different types of actors. In this paper we introduce three different ideal types of mobilized individuals – first movers, early joiners and late joiners – and we elaborate theoretical mechanisms highlighting how different ideational and material factors are at play for different ideal types. We show the relevance of our actors’ types and the relative mechanisms using a mix-methods approach. We use a survival analysis based on individual data members of the resistance who fought against the Nazi-fascist forces in Italy between 1943-1945 (N »150,000), preliminary findings show that we can identify clearly different types of rebels who join at different phases the armed mobilization according to individual features.
