Origins and Evolution of Environmental Policies: State, Time and Regional Experiences

About the eBook

This unique book traces the origins and evolution of environmental policy formation, comparing the differences in this process between developing and developed countries. It focuses on the importance of the state's role and issues of timing and sequence in the creation of environmental policies.


Expert contributors provide new insights into how the environment as a concept and environmental policies have evolved. They analyse how ''latecomer public policy'' is related to the dilemma between industrial development and maintaining high environmental standards, especially in developing countries. Chapters also examine these processes in a variety of regions with rich records of environmental policies and trajectories of change. Taking a historical and path dependence approach, the book emphasises the significance of the role of administrative systems, policy coordination and timing in the success or failure of environmental policies.


This book will be a valuable resource for academics and students of environmental studies, public policy, public administration and regional studies. Its synthesis of empirical data and case studies from countries including China, Taiwan, Thailand, the US and Germany will also be beneficial for policymakers.
