Rules, Norms and NGO Advocacy Strategies: Hydropower Development on the Mekong River
2015 (English)Book (Refereed)
There is much controversy over the development of new dams for hydropower, where concerns for environmental protection and the livelihoods of local people may conflict with the goals of economic development. This book analyses the opportunities and barriers that NGOs and civil society actors face when conducting advocacy campaigns against such developments. The book compares the strategies of two NGO coalitions advocating against the Xayaburi hydropower dam on the Mekong River, namely Vietnam Rivers Network and the Rivers Coalition in Cambodia, and establishes how formal and informal rules and norms influence these strategies.
