Environmentalism in Indonesian Politics
Towards Integrated Environmental Law in Indonesia (2003)
  • Robert Cribb, The Australian National University
Abstract

Environmential politics emerged in Indonesia during the autheoritarian Suharto era. Rather than being a reaction to Suharto's predatory approach to the environment, many environmental policies were closely tied to the managerial, technocratic and campaign-oriented approach of the New Order.
