Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to investigate the characteristics of the structural change of the Korean environmental movement. At the end of the 1980s, the Korean environmental movement showed the following characteristics: First, the major actors changed from the victims of environmental pollution and the activists of the nationalist-democratic movements to the activists of the citizens' movements. Second, the interests of the participants moved from their own self-interest to more universal and global concerns. Third, in regard to the methods of resource mobilization, militant protest and demonstration were replaced by lobbying and appealing to public opinion. Fourth, while leftist environmentalism declined, belief in active environmental management and ecological consciousness proliferated. Fifth, the main issues diffused from the victims' right to public health, ecosystem preservation, and global environmental problem. (The rest omitted)
