Still More on Japan's Inland Sea Coastal Citizens' Movements

by Harvey A. Shapiro, Osaka Geijutsu Univ, Japan,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Coastal Zone '87


This paper is the third in a continuing series of reports on the battle of Japan's coastal citizens in that nation's largest estuarine water body, the famed Seto Inland Sea, to protect that threatened coastal water body and its surrounding coastal environment. First, an update on the activities of several previously reported movements is done, followed by an introduction to two movements as yet unknown outside of Japan. The methods, successes and failures etc. documented in this series are aimed at providing those outside Japan an up-to-date look at that nation's maturing democratic tendencies seen against the traditional political culture of a nation in which democracy has no roots.
