The Trans-Adriatic Pipeline and the Nimby Syndrome

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The note aims to describe the management of the Nimby resistance concerning the Trans-Adriatic Pipeline project through administrative compensatory measures. The Trans-Adriatic Pipeline case offers a privileged point of view to examine efficiency of administrative compensations in solving local conflicts. After the examination of interpretation theories on the Nimby syndrome, the note focuses on the administrative compensation-based strategy usually deployed to solve territorial conflicts. The compensation pattern used in relation to the Trans-Adriatic Pipeline is also discussed. The analysis will allow general reflections on the use of administrative compensations to overcome Nimby.
