Energy Transition in East Asia: A Social Science Perspective

東亞能源轉型英文專書

 

 

 

  自2011年福島核災事件發生後,不僅震驚全球,也引發各國學術領域針對核能安全、民眾信任、政府治理、風險治理、風險感知以及科技與社會等各面向激起熱烈討論與研究。福島事件不僅凸顯出了東亞地區內風險治理的重要性,也是串起東亞國家能源轉型的重要契機。

  綜覽攸關於風險治理相關主題的學術專書,卻仍侷限在西方的治理脈絡,然而,東亞國家本身的歷史與文化形塑出特有的管制特性,有著不同於西方世界的管制文化。本書由本中心主任周桂田教授主編,集結來自日本、韓國與臺灣之頂尖學者,共同描繪在氣候變遷危機下,各國政府如何處理能源轉型?藉由當代全球化風險議題探討,形塑出東亞特性的風險治理架構,為學術與實務領域提供嶄新的視野。

  The Fukushima disaster of 2011 shook the globe, arousing warm debate and new research within the academic fields of countries in both the West and the East on issues related to nuclear security, public trust, government governance, risk governance and risk perception along with technological and social aspects. The Fukushima incident not only revealed the importance of risk governance in the East Asian region, but also became an important turning point in the restructuring of energy in several East Asian nations. However, the regulatory culture in East Asian countries is by nature different to that of their western counterparts; the history and culture of East Asia has formed East Asian countries’ unique regulatory characteristics.

This book aims to establish a risk governance structure for the East Asian region, providing a completely new perspective for both practical implementation and the academic field. It focusses on the problems of risk governance in East Asia. Through a discussion of the risk related issues raised by contemporary globalization, this book outlines the unique form of East Asia’s risk governance architecture. It brings together the work of top academics from Japan, South Korea and Taiwan to provide a common picture of how these three countries’ governments are dealing with the energy transition brought on by the climate change crisis. The various aspects of East Asia’s unique regulatory culture and governance models are placed into context, while East Asia’s risk governance theoretical framework is outlined.
