Call for papers for the special issue "CHINA'S ENVIRONMENTAL CHALLENGE"

Call for papers for publication in the scholarly journal:
Environmental Practice
The journal of the National Association of Environmental Professionals

vol. 15 no. 2
Over the last three decades, China's rapid economic expansion has lifted millions of people out of poverty and returned China to prominence on the international stage.   At the same time, however, it has placed a tremendous strain on the natural environment.  According to the World Bank, sixteen of the twenty most polluted cities in the world are in China and air pollution alone contributes to 750,000 premature deaths in China each year.  China's pollution not only harms its citizens' health, but also potentially threatens future economic growth, undermines political stability, and complicates China's relations with the rest of the world.
This issue of Environmental Practice is dedicated to exploring the causes and consequences of China's environmental challenge.  We invite manuscripts that touch on an array of themes, including but not limited to: (1) the sources of China's environmental degradation; (2) the social, economic or political costs of China's pollution; (3) new measures and government policies aimed at the promotion of environmental protection; (4) the role of non-state actors in environmental governance (e.g. NGOs, student groups, corporations, etc); (5) the obstacles inhibiting better environmental protection; (6) China's environmental foreign relations.
We welcome a variety of perspectives and submissions from scholars, practitioners, and students. 
Deadline for submittals is November 1, 2012. Please send all submissions and
