Procedural Justice in Conflict Resolution: Empirical Research on the Acceptance of Not-In-My-Backyard Cases

What role the procedural justice has in conflict resolution? This project seeks to answer this question from Not-In-My-Backyard (NIMBY) cases in the developing countries. The procedural justice assumes that stakeholders may consider the outcome produced through participatory approach in decision-making process more legitimate than otherwise, even if the outcome is unbeneficial. Although this assumption has been widely acknowledged in developed countries, it has been rarely tested with extractive industries, sewage processing plants, or big infrastructure building cases in the global South. This project corroborates the effect of improving procedural justice on the social acceptance of NIMBYs in Latin America using survey experiments.
