Abstract

Like it or not, socio-environmental issues extend beyond geopolitical boundaries. Southeast Asians might remember the Indonesian haze that had affected the region's air quality, for instance – an issue that was eventually addressed with the help of foreign groups; or the recovery efforts of the 2004 tsunami, which also involved many international entities. According to Yooil Bae, a political science professor at SMU, foreign groups can bring new insights and methods. But while there are benefits to knowledge-sharing and cooperation, the process can be tricky, especially when such advocacy groups clash with the state.
