Chapter Summary

The content of SOAS access to environmental justice (SOAS/A2EJ) was extensively set out in project papers and reports, and was often referred to in, or provided the actual substance of, some notable publications in the mid- to late-1990s. SOAS/A2EJ set out to study the extent to which citizens can and do exert influence over their urban environments through the legal systems in seven cities, namely Accra, Bangalore, Cape Town, Karachi, Kuala Lumpur, Tokyo, and Xiamen: cities which span Asia and Africa as well as different climates, levels and type of economic development, and national legal and constitutional systems, as well as exhibiting a different set of environmental problems. The social use of legal gateways was mainly investigated through surveying lawyers and NGOs in order to gather systematic data about the social use of legal gateways for public participation; and case studies of particular examples of citizen mobilisation around legal gateways.

Keywords: constitutional systems; legal gateways; public participation; SOAS access to environmental justice (SOAS/A2EJ)
