Zdeněk Konopásek & Tereza Stöckelová: Making pure science/pure politics in the public controversy over the highway bypass of Plzen

Presentation at the joint annual conference of the Society for Social Studies of Science (4S) and The European Association for the Study of Science and Technology (EASST), Paris, France; August 25-28, 2004

This paper is based on a detailed empirical case study of a long-term public controversy over the construction of a highway by-pass around the city of Plzen (in South-Western Bohemia, Czech Republic). The controversy involved a wide range of actors: local activists, an environmentalist NGO, politicians of all levels, experts, developers, state and regional administration, and media people. Two variants of the by-pass were at stake: one of them gradually appearing better and better, attractive for experts, but existing as if only on paper, while the other was becoming more and more real, pushed through mainly by local politicians, and actually constructed. Although the story could be narrated in terms of an unequal struggle between environmentalists and small villages on one side and politicians, economic lobbies and municipality of a big city on the other, we will try to follow a more subtle and complex story-line, which focuses upon different strategic usages of science and politics. Besides explaining how it happened that one of the variants “attracted” the winning properties (and “won”), we will also describe a “vicious” circle of a double purification of science and politics and show how it contributes to the fragility of both democracy and expertise.
