Abstract


 

The article presents the Health Impact Assessment (HIA) methodology, as adopted in a pilot-project of participatory evaluation, held in Campania region (Italy). The main goal of this assessment procedure is to analyze the global effects on the population’s wellbeing, attributable to a specific and recent law of the State (L.6/2014): the aim of this norm is to contrast the dreadful pollution in a specific area (called “Terra dei Fuochi”: “Land of Fires”), caused by decades of criminal management of illegal waste disposal.

Moreover, the case-study offers the opportunity to discuss the potential of HIA in order to foster the empowerment of people involved in a particular kind of evaluation process that is radically different than the neoliberal approach to policy assessment.
