La investigadora de EU-NormCon, Patricia Garcia-Duran (UB) publica conjuntamente con Leif Johan Eliasson (East Stroudsburg University) el libro ‘Civil Society, Rhetoric of Resistance, and Transatlantic Trade‘. El libro ha sido editado por Palgrave Pivot perteneciente a Palgrave Macmillan.

This book investigates the politics of transatlantic trade, specifically the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership negotiations. Using a novel approach, the authors analyze the rhetorical choices made by opponents and supporters of an agreement, and the logical behind their arguments. Opponents used emotive frames and strategically chosen issues to increase public opposition to the negotiations; supporters countered, but also accommodated, parts of opponents’ rhetoric in hopes of quelling discontent. The study also highlights the resulting changes to EU trade policy, thus contributing to the literatures on trade policy, politicization, and rhetorical analysis.
