Rethinking the internationalization of environmental interest groups A regime approach to behaviour

Abstract

The internationalization of environmental interest groups, especially within the minerals sector, has long been a recognized fact. The factors that may account for this have attracted little attention. This paper will examine both how and why environmental interest groups internationalize. Various factors thought to influence the formation of interest groups across national borders have been closely analysed. Trade, exchange rates, and transport are just some of the many variables which influence the formation and activity of these entities. We believe that interest group formation generally, and environmental interest groups specifically, may be more usefully scrutinized in light of the politics and theory of political social movements.
