Description - Transnational Activism in Asia by Nicola Piper
In an era of intensified globalization, social and political activists increasingly operate beyond and across state borders. This book provides new perspectives on transnational activism with a specific regional focus on Asia. This volume connects the literature on social movements and NGOs operating in a transnational context. It contributes to the establishment of transnational activism as a multidisciplinary field of research and suggests new ways of analyzing problems of power and democracy. The chapters include thoroughly grounded empirical case studies from countries like China, Japan, Taiwan, Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia, covering a wide variety of issue areas such as the environment, AIDS, and human rights. The innovative theoretical chapters explore concepts like state power, discursive power, governance regimes, and world citizenship. Transnational Activism in Asia should be of interest not only for scholars and activists specializing in transnational activisms, but also for general students of globalization and transnational relations, civil society, social movements, NGOs, democratization, and Asian politics.
