Environmental Values

Environment and Participation in a Context of Political Modernisation

Jan P.M. van Tatenhove and Pieter Leroy

Environmental Values 12(2003): 155-174. doi: 10.3197/096327103129341270

This article discusses the relation between environment and participation in the context of different stages of political modernisation. We focus on the dynamics of environmental policy on the one hand, and the organisation of political participation on the other. The central argument is that participation is inextricably linked to environmental issues, but that their relation differs substantially over the various stages of the institutionalisation of environmental policy. While in the 1970s supplementary forms of participation dominated, the societalisation and marketisation of environmental policies from the late 1980s has given rise to new opportunities for participation, implying a more rule-altering potential.


KEYWORDS: Environmental policy, political participation, policy arrangements, political modernisation
