Environmental Litigation in China: A Study in Political Ambivalence

Environmental Litigation in China: A Study in Political Ambivalence (Cambridge Studies in Law and Society) by Rachel E. Stern
English | 2013 | ISBN: 1107020026, 1107460026 | 314 pages | PDF | 1,2 MB

This is a book about the improbable: seeking legal relief for pollution in contemporary China. In a country known for tight political control and ineffectual courts, Environmental Litigation in China unravels how everyday justice works: how judges make decisions, why lawyers take cases, and how international influence matters. It is a readable account of how the leadership's mixed signals and political ambivalence play out on the ground - propelling some, such as the village doctor who fought a chemical plant for more than a decade, even as others back away from risk. Yet this remarkable book shows that even in a country where expectations would be that law wouldn't much matter, environmental litigation provides a sliver of space for legal professionals to explore new roles and, in so doing, probe the boundary of what is politically possible.
