Eco-Demos: Using Public Demonstrations to Influence and Manage Environmental Choices and Politics

Claude Rosental

Abstract : This paper shows how members of NGOs, scientists, journalists, industrialists, political and administrative authorities use different forms of public demonstrations to influence and manage environmental choices and politics. The analysis is based on three case-studies on protests and on scientific demonstrations made public in France and in England. It focuses on demonstrations of the danger of nuclear waste, anti-road protests and demonstrations in the field of waste management. The paper highlights the roles played by these “eco-demos” and reflects more generally on the social uses and politics of public demonstrations.

Keywords: Public demonstration, politics, protest, environment, waste management
