Emplazar un Almacén Temporal Centralizado (ATC) de residuos nucleares en un municipio genera oposición y conflicto, tanto a nivel municipal, regional como estatal. Este artículo analiza el conflicto originado en la región de las "Terres de l'Ebre" (Catalunya) ante la posible ubicación de la infraestructura en un municipio de la región, Ascó, y los motivos por los que se tardó tanto en adjudicar un lugar.

Locating a Temporary Centralized Storage Facility (TCSF) for nuclear waste in a municipality generates opposition and conflict, both at the municipal, regional and state levels. This paper examines the conflict originated in the region of "Terres de l'Ebre" (Catalunya) in view of the possible allocation of the infrastructure in a municipality of the region, Ascó, and the reasons why it has taken a long time to decide a place.

Discursive synergies for a ‘Great Transformation’ towards sustainability : pragmatic contributions to a necessary dialogue between human development, degrowth, and buen vivir / Beling, Adrián E.

There is a growing awareness that a whole-societal " Great Transformation " of Polanyian scale is needed to bring global developmental trajectories in line with ecological imperatives. The mainstream Sustainable Development discourse, however, insists in upholding the myth of compatibility of current growth-based trajectories with biophysical planetary boundaries. [...]
