Van Vugt applies a model of democratic organization for social change to his findings regarding the way literacy campaigns and Christian Base communities were organized in Nicaragua, El Salvador, Guatemala, and Brazil. His study is valuable as an example of a scientific methodology for studying and cultivating democratic organization for social change, and as a clarification of the controversy over the role of specific campaigns and organizations.Van Vugt approaches his study from an interdisciplinary perspective using a methodology that is qualitative, historical, and comparative.

He blends the cultural insights of ethnography with the structural understanding of how ideologies and organizations motivate and mobilize people. His research is based on field studies in Nicaragua- other studies of El Salvador, Guatemala, and Brazil- and theories of democratic organization and social change.
