Description

In the 1990s, Japan gradually began to turn green and started to experiment with more participatory forms
of environmental governance. Ecological Modernisation and Japan explores this transformation and looks
at Japan as a case for ecological modernisation while contextualising the discussion within its unique
history and recent discussions about globalisation and sustainability. It makes a significant contribution
to the ecological modernisation debate by unpacking the Japanese environmental experience.
Reviews

'In addition to its account of development in Japan, this book will likely be welcomed by supporters and
critics of the theory of ecological modernization, because the central arguement provides additional fuel
concerning the pros and cons of the theory.



'This volume provides an up-to-date and worthy commentary on environmental politics in Japan. It is
informative and well-researched, and the collaborators should be commended for their efforts.'
