Deciding Waste Facilities

  • Subirats Humet, Joan (Principal Investigator)

Project Details


We will try to apply the approach of public policy analysis to the specific issue of waste facilities siting. In particular, the attempt here is to formulate hypothesis about a) the main characteristics of the decision making processes about waste facilities siting, as we expect them to be on the basis of the existing literature; b) the factors will be more likely to find in order to explain the final positive outcome. Success is defined as the ability to build and operate a facility in a reasonable time within a given geographical framework. We are nottrying to determine what is "right" or "wrong" in absolute terms, but to establish how a solution to the siting problem is found, which issuitable for a given environmental and social context.
