Titel: Blocking Minorities
Networks and Meaning in the Opposition Against the Proposal for a Directive on Temporary Work in the Council of Ministers of the European Union
Forfatter: Nedergaard, Peter
Resume: This article contains a case study of the behavior of a blocking minority in the Council of Ministers. An important result is that the behavior of Member States cannot in this case be explained directly by domestic circumstances and interests as it is often done in the neoliberal literature. Instead, necessary variables offered in this article are tight networks and their ability to create meaning in being part of the blocking minority through an attractive story-line. If generalized, it means that the influence of story-lines created by discourse-coalitions has to be upgraded as explanations of the behavior in the Council of Ministers and that actors providing the network with hegemony can critically strengthen an issue network.
