    Abstract

    The new problematic of urban governance is finding dramatic manifestation in the issue of urban waste management. Popular resistance to the siting of waste incinerators in Ireland is leading to a grave legitimacy crisis for the government. The nation-state is caught in a crisis due to popular opposition to the plans and the need to meet more stringent European Union (EU) guidelines on sustainable waste management and recycling.
