Module Title : Development and Environment in Southeast Asia
Module Description : This module focuses on the intersection between development and environment in Southeast Asia. Utilising a range of conceptual lenses from sustainable development to political ecology, the module interrogates the varied environmental impacts and ramifications of the development of the region. The module pays particular attention to the ways in which environmental change affects everyday lives. Case studies include issues such as upland living and forest peoples, trans-boundary environmental issues, and the role and place of Buddhism as an eco-centric religion. The module encourages a critical view of the trade-offs between economic growth (development) and environmental protection.
