About this book

This book explores the debate and politicisation of the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) negotiations in the Spanish, French and British public spheres. It addresses the questions of how and to what extent the national media discourses about TTIP were Europeanised, and how this type ofEuropeanisation contributes to the democratic legitimacy of the EU. The author argues that the politicisation of TTIP should be seen as a symptom of the ‘normal’ politics of a democratic polity, as it enlarges the political arena by embedding European issues into national political debates. Demands for ‘Another Europe is Possible’ empower rather than hinder the legitimacy of the EU.

Reviews

“Alvaro Oleart offers a ground-breaking understanding of the European public sphere and new insights in the way in which it operates” (Ben Crum, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, The Netherlands)

“This book is a highly relevant read for all those interested in the relation between EU contestation and Euroscepticism. Drawing on an agonistic and deliberative understanding of the public sphere, this rigorous study of the politicised debate on TTIP is a significant contribution to the emergence of a European public sphere, and thus to the continued democratisation of the EU.” (Maximilian Conrad - Professor of Political Science at the University of Iceland)
