Abstract

Argumentativeness is an attribute not to be

neglected in the crisis communication discourse.

This paper constructs an argumentation-oriented

public crisis communication model. The new

model incorporates the well-established rules

and two-way symmetric principle in crisis

communication with argumentation analysis

and evaluation under the theory of pragmadialectics.

By analyzing the strategies and

evaluating the effects of a local Chinese

government’s crisis communication related with

a proposed NIMBY facility in Mainland China, the

case is employed to underline the significance

of the new model in real crisis communication.
