Abstract

This book (1) identifies the political, economic and socio-cultural conditions under which Asia’s environmental movements have emerged; (2) outlines the characteristics of Asia’s environmental movements; (3) traces the history and transformation of these environmental movements over the past three decades; (4) examines the impacts of these movements on the state, economy, and society; and (5) examines the similarities and differences between and among Asia’s environmental movements.
Two sets of countries were selected to illustrate the diversity of the experiences of the development of environmental organizations in the region. The first set of research sites includes Hong Kong, Taiwan, and South Korea, all of which are "newly industrializing economies" (NIEs) that have just gone through democratic breakthroughs and are heavily influenced by Confucian cultural values. The second set of research sites includes Thailand and the Philippines which, when compared to the NIEs, are less advanced economically and are dominated by Buddhist and Christian cultural values.
