Chapter Summary

This chapter presents a list of terms and concepts discussed in the book Chinese Research Perspectives on the Environment, Volume 3: Public Action and Government Accountability. In 2012, a series of public protests against industrial pollution and its resulting environmental health problems became the focus of attention in China. These collective actions were carried out in two modes. In the first mode, victims of pollution and other stakeholders played a leading role in action aimed at protecting environmental rights. In the second mode, participants are better organized and have more knowledge about the environment. Environmental mass incidents in the cities of Shifang, Qidong, and Ningbo, where people protested against local plans to construct large-scale heavily polluting enterprises, are typical cases of the first mode.

Keywords: Ningbo; Qidong; Shifang
