Lonely Rebel Or Pioneer of the Future? Towards an Understanding of Moral Stakeholder Framing of Activist Brands

This study investigates the link between brand-induced activism, stakeholder framing and legitimation processes evolving around the emerging market practice of crowd-funding. The discursive inquiry into online discussions on an activist brand reveals the moral positioning and rhetoric tactics of three discursive coalitions: of moral architects, moral archeologists, and moral disenchanters.
