This multidisciplinary book examines the diverse ways in which environmental disasters with compounding impacts are being governed as they traverse sovereign territories across rapidly urbanising societies in Asia and the Pacific. Combining theoretical advances with contextually rich studies, the book examines efforts to tackle the complexities of cross-border environmental governance.

Produktbeschreibung
This multidisciplinary book examines the diverse ways in which environmental disasters with compounding impacts are being governed as they traverse sovereign territories across rapidly urbanising societies in Asia and the Pacific. Combining theoretical advances with contextually rich studies, the book examines efforts to tackle the complexities of cross-border environmental governance. In an urban age in which disasters are not easily contained within neatly delineated jurisdictions, both in terms of their interconnected causalities and their cascading effects, governance structures and mechanisms are faced with major challenges related to cooperation, collaboration and information sharing. This book helps bridge the gap between theory and practice by offering fresh insights and contrasting explanations for variations in transboundary disaster governance regimes among urbanising populations in the Asia-Pacific.

Autorenporträt
Michelle Ann Miller is a Senior Research Fellow at the Asia Research Institute, National University of Singapore. Trained in political science, her research focuses on intersections between urban and regional governance in the context of human conflict and environmental change. She leads the Disaster Governance theme of the Asian Urbanisms Cluster at ARI. Her interdisciplinary publications speak to contemporary theoretical debates and key policy issues in environmental disaster governance, decentralisation, urban change, and citizenship and belonging. A reoccurring concern throughout her work is with the policy potential and lived experience of decentralisation in generating more inclusive and effective forms of governance, especially in Indonesia but across Asia more broadly. Before joining ARI, she taught at Deakin University and Charles Darwin University in Australia, and she has held visiting research fellowships in Indonesia at both the Centre for Strategic and International Studies (Jakarta) and Ar-Raniry Institut Agama Islam Negeri (Banda Aceh). She is international advisor of the Varieties of Peace research program, a global initiative of Umeå University, supported by the Swedish Foundation for Humanities and Social Sciences.
