Authoritarian Environmentalism and China's Response to Climate ChangeEnvironmental Politics: Symposium on Climate Change, Discourse and Democracy (2012)
Authoritarian environmentalism is a non-participatory approach to public policy-making and implementation in the face of severe environmental challenges. Using the case of China's climate change policy, the meaning, causes, and consequences of authoritarian environmentalism are explored. A key finding is that authoritarian environmentalism is more effective in producing policy outputs than outcomes. Theoretical and policy implications follow.
- China -- Politics and government,
- Climate change
