Share Survival Politics in East Asia: Socio-Environmental Crises and Grassroots Responses

Event Details

Social and environmental change in East Asia is creating massive challenges in many parts of the
region. Urban and industrial pollution; overcrowding in some regions with rural depopulation in
others; deforestation and climate change; failing urban infrastructure; events like the Fukushima
nuclear disaster in Japan. Conventional politics struggles to deal with these challenges, and in some
cases state policies may contribute to crisis rather than resolving it.


Against this background, Survival Politics in East Asia explores the initiatives taken by local
communities and grassroots groups to confront socio‐environmental crisis. How do local residents
develop the skills and expertise to respond to new environmental and social challenges? How do
grassroots responses interact with the policies of local and national governments? What outcomes
have they achieved, and what obstacles have they faced?


Participants will include not only academic researchers but also those with first‐hand experience of
involvement in local grassroots action in the region.
