Local Conflict between Interest and Identity

an Introduction

In this monograph we shall analyse these two protest campaigns, which social sciences would generally classify as being related to locally unwanted land use (LULU), considering them in light of the principal hypotheses in the sociological literature on local conflict, as well as locating them within the literature on global movements. Protest campaigns against large-scale public works usually take place within a local context. If the aggregation of needs and interests in a given territory is certainly not a new phenomenon, in the 1990s we see growing analytical focus on new forms of protest, which have been portrayed as limited and localised. It has been observed that those seeking to defend the quality of life in a limited territory tend to oppose public works that are seen as either compromising ecological equilibrium (e.g. refuse incinerators) or compromising public security (e.g. insertion of unwanted social groups in their territory). The presence of localised conflicts has met with great concern, given the multiplication in both these types of LULU protests in recent years (della Porta 2004a).
