Environmental Cooperation in Southeast Asia: ASEAN's Regime for Trans-boundary Haze Pollution (Routledge Contemporary Southeast Asia)

Paruedee Nguitragool


One of the main demanding environmental threats to the 10 nations of the organization of Southeast Asian international locations (ASEAN) has been the haze, the sickening and lethal cloud of smoky pollutants because of frequent burning of land and forests in Indonesia. This publication examines either the probability and reaction to it by way of analysing environmental cooperation in Southeast Asia from a global regime perspective.

Tracing the advance of local cooperation at the haze and comparing the effectiveness of the cooperation, the writer argues that the haze quandary, mixed with the industrial quandary of 1997, has profoundly challenged the ASEAN modus operandi, and ended in ASEAN’s efforts to set up an environmental regime to deal with environmental demanding situations. The rising ASEAN haze regime is a special case research of a local environmental establishment in multi-levelled worldwide environmental governance.

Based on in-depth unique study, this situation examine is built-in into diplomacy, political technology, and comparative political research literatures and contributes to a greater realizing of procedures in the local organisation.
