   EXPLORING INTERNATIONAL ENVIRONMENTAL
        GOVERNANCE REGIMES: THE ASIAN WAY

                          RODA MUSHKAT*

                              ABSTRACT

        Ecological degradation and strategies to combat it have loomed
increasingly large on the socio-legal research agenda for the past three
decades. The scholarly attention they have garnered has spawned a rich
literature on multi-level environmental governance, including on an
international, and even global, scale. Social scientists have spearheaded
the quest for gaining a deeper insight into the phenomenon, but students
of law have also been active participants in the process of knowledge
accumulation. Asian inputs have been relatively modest and produced
comparatively late in the long journey of scientific, or quasi-scientific,
discovery. Yet they enhance the understanding of the issues broadly
addressed, even if at times in a critical fashion, despite their selective
focus and the paucity of constructively articulated suggestions for
remedial action.

 traced as far as the Industrial Revolution. From a historical viewpoint in
