Yanwei Li (2018). Governing environmental conflicts in China. Oxon: Routledge.
Environmental conflicts are the source of many large-scale popular protests in China, with some protests substantially endangering social order. Such protests have often prompted severe counter measures by both national and local government, but have often then gone on to result in compromises whereby the demands of protesters have been largely met. This book considers the nature of environmental conflicts in China and the way in which national and local governments have handled the situations. It includes detailed case studies of particular conflicts, relates the governance of environmental conflicts in China to wider discussions on the nature of governance and examines under what conditions government in China makes compromises. The book concludes by assessing the lessons for the future.
该著作发表于2018年三月，由Routledge出版社出版，并收录于郑永年教授主编的中国政策书系（China Policy Series）。其主要关注中国地方政府如何应对环境争议这一治理议题，对于2007年至2013年之间发生的针对垃圾焚烧项目与PX项目所引发的十个环境争议事件进行深度研究。该著作一方面从理论上构建一个分析地方政府环境争议治理的框架，另一方面通过单案例研究、比较案例研究与定性比较研究（Qualitative Comparative Analysis）的方法验证框架适用性，以此来发展现有环境争议治理理论。
