Sammanfattning

This study analyzes the argumentation used in the Swedish controversy over using silver as an antibacterial agent in consumer and healthcare products. The analysis is based on texts from the news media, government agencies, non-governmental organizations, municipalities, companies, and the Swedish parliament and government. Opponents argue that silver harms the environment, while proponents not only refute this, but even claim it to be beneficial. Refutation of opposing views and invocations of scientific evidence are overall argumentative strategies used by both sides of the controversy. These patterns of the controversy form a complex and multi-faceted context that can be expected to restrict citizen conceptualization, information seeking, participation, and deliberation.
