dc.description.abstractTwo cases of long-lasting environmental conflicts in Italy - one against the construction of a high-speed railway in Val di Susa, the other against the building of a bridge across the Messina Straits - are analysed. Recent social scientific literature has considered such conflicts as either Not in My Back Yard (NIMBY), egotistical and antimodernist, or as a progressive defence of the quality of life in a territory. A characteristic of both these strands of literature is to consider interests as exogenous. We concentrate instead on the definition of the identity of the protestors, the stakes of the conflict, and the solutions to them as they emerge through cognitive conflicts.
