Environmental Politics in East Asia: Strategies that Work

This project uses the Japanese experience to uncover and explain which environmental advocacy strategies are the most successful in generating pro-environmental behavior change among governments, businesses, and individuals. The study combines the quantitative analysis of two original large-n datasets of environmental organizations and events with qualitative case studies of environmental politics in Japan, the People's Republic of China, the Republic of China, and the Republic of Korea. It finds that the strategies that have been most effective in Japan and East Asia are also the most common and effective environmental advocacy strategies around the world although they have gained less academic attention than the strategies more prevalent in North American and Western Europe. The work will be a contribution to Japanese studies, comparative politics, and environmental studies, demonstrating how Japan can be a starting place for new theories and understandings of environmental politics.
