About this book

This book focuses on changes in environmental and economic policies in six developing countries. It shows how domestic politics interact with international actors such as multilateral institutions. It offers lively accounts of the behaviour of political actors, interest groups and the civil society, in particular environmentalists. It shows how ideas such as those of neoliberal economics affect policymaking, in particular during or after crisis, but also how social protest and demands for sustainable development are mobilized.
