The Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement and European Civil Society: A Case Study on Networked Advocacy
Stockholm University, Faculty of Humanities, Department of Journalism, Media and Communication (JMK).
2014 (English)Conference paper, Presentation (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

As a case study the European Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA) debate provides the opportunity to investigate networked advocacy in information policy within European Democracy. However, while analysis of socio-political networks such as civil society advocacy or multi-level politics recognizes both vertical and horizontal dimensions, research on the role of communications networks too often focus only on the horizontal dimension of communications. As a result, the role of multiple platforms and technologies in supporting networked civil society advocacy is too often missed. By illuminating the multiple roles of civil society within the European ACTA debate, and the multiple dimensions through through which these actions took places this paper demonstrates the importance of examining the range of technologies that support different communicative acts and networked activism within the networked public sphere
