An edited collection of concise, hard-hitting essays by a group of international experts and scholars that address the politics and policy of environmental change and sustainable development in East and Southeast Asia.
The book pays particular attention to the ways in which foreign policy and international relations theories help explain eco-politics and sustainable development in the region. Case studies cover environmental diplomacy in East Asia and strategies for sustainable development in Southeast Asia, including Japanese environmental policy, China’s climate change diplomacy, the role of NGOs in shaping Thailand’s policies on biodiversity, international assistance and marine environmental protection in Vietnam, sustainable development policy in Taiwan, and the role of community-based conflict management in environmental protection efforts in Papua New Guinea.
Paul Harris is an Associate Professor of Politics at Lingnan University, Hong Kong.
