Defending Island Ecologies: Environmental Campaigns in Tasmania and Taiwan


Chen, HCL and Hay, PR, Defending Island Ecologies: Environmental Campaigns in Tasmania and Taiwan, Journal of Developing Societies, 22, (3) pp. 303-326. ISSN 0169-796X (2006) [Refereed Article]

The article compares and contrasts the iconic environmental campaigns of two island jurisdictions, Tasmania and Taiwan-the Franklin-Gordon 'wild rivers' campaign in the first case; the Chilan Forest campaign in the second. The features of each campaign are delineated-the levels of government involved; the institutional fault lines that developed; the scale of campaign operations; activist tactics; and the significance, within their respective contexts, of each iconic campaign. How each campaign 'fits' a wider context of environmental activism is sketched, and the article concludes with an agenda for future cross-island research into environmental activism.
