About this product
- DescriptionThis study examines Japan's transnational environmental policy through environmental techlogy transfer to Newly Industrializing Countries (NICs) in the 1990s. It addresses the ability of Japan to take up the challenges in this transnational sphere. Social scientists differ in their assessment about the future of nation-states' capability to steer policy formulation under this changing framework. However, transnationalization does t necessarily undermine the state, but includes transformations of state forms and policy making. The transfer of environmental techlogy to NICs proceeds on the assumption of the existent, but probably reduced capacity of states to act. Based on the policy cycle model, this study focuses special attention to the actors based on Albrecht Dehnhard's theory that nation-states are gaining power in international circles.
