Abstract

Urban-based environmental pressure groups comprise an important political force in all late modern societies. Yet they have received negligible attention from social anthropologists. This paper examines the politics of an environmentalist network in the city of Cork, Ireland, on the outskirts of which is concentrated a large number of transnational corporations, many of them involved in advanced chemical and pharmaceutical production. The objective of the Cork Environmental Alliance is to closely monitor the impact which these transnational companies have on the regional environment. This analysis details the local level political strategies adopted by the CEA, as well as examining the supra-local relations which this network of activists must sustain in order to function as a potent force in an exceptionally unequal arena of economic and political power.
