Abstract

The book explores the impacts of social movement campaigns on EU policy issues, arguing that a ‘political-technical’ divide in campaign styles exists, with corresponding effects on outcomes. Specifically, this argument refers not to the actual content of the issues campaigns form around, but the shapes that campaigns take according to their degree of involvement in consultation processes with the European Commission. Six campaigns (on GMOs, chemicals legislation, the right to water European Citizens' Initiative, the Lisbon Agenda, the Services Directive and the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement) are investigated using tools from the study of social movements to illustrate this argument.
