Cleaning up after the Celtic Tiger : scalar fixes in the political ecology of Tiger economies

Auteur :
BOYLE, M.

Description :
Using a theoretically provocative case study that examines the politics of waste management in Ireland, the paper argues that in reflecting upon the role of such culture wars in the constitution of dominant social relations in Tiger states, the concepts of scalar strategies and struggles over scale may prove useful. Ecological projects too are fundamentally produced by and implicated in the structuration of scale. In calling for dialogue between political ecological studies and recent work in geography, the paper hopes to contribute towards the development of a political ecology of Tiger states.
