Environmental Advocacy in East Asia
East Asia is a region dominated by pro-business governments that are generally hostile to political advocacy, and yet those same governments have become global leaders in environmental policymaking. East Asia’s environmental advocates must be doing something right—What can we learn from them? This talk will drawn on some of the highlights from Haddad’s new book, Effective Advocacy: Lessons from East Asia’s Environmentalists (MIT, 2021), which introduces a new model for understanding policymaking and illustrates five of the most effective strategies for environmental advocates.
