The mining sector is a major issue for most Asian governments as well as a controversial one, drawing criticism from indigenous groups, non-governmental organizations and politically-motivated elites. In addition, corruption and a lack of institutional capacity frequently plagues the sector. Despite significant resource wealth and positive regulatory reform over the past decade, investors have continued to treat the region with caution. Poor performance of the governance structures and non-performing regulatory regimes in the mining sector is behind the high level of risk for foreign mining investors and the low levels of foreign direct investment (FDI) in many of these countries. The objective of this book is to identify key drivers for poor regulatory performance in six mineral-rich Asian countries (Australia, China, India, Indonesia, Papua New Guinea and the Philippines) and suggest particular causes of action to improve regulatory architecture in the region.

RRP $29.99

This book presents a comparative study of the vision, ability and dynamism on the part of governments in selected Asian Pacific countries as they engage in the distribution of e-governance. Consequently, it creates a platform for mutual learning and offers a dispassionate evaluation of mega e-projects. It is an interdisciplinary study of information and communication technology within mainstream social science research and attempts to bridge the gap in empirical research between the nature of technology and the manner in which it is governed. The analysis shows that hegemonic and panoptic structures of surveillance and control may derail efforts to establish sustainable e-governance, while a liberal futuristic framework with open socio-technology networks on Big Data analytics, IPv6 and Cloud Computing may strengthen the trend towards democratizing institutions. Further, the book highlights the extraordinary energy being generated in the emerging new world through their use of the internet and suggests how governments could translate this into a new wealth of economic opportunities, social inclusion and equitable development, in addition to achieving the MDGs (Millenium Development Goals). Lastly, it emphasizes the importance of a visionary approach, which, wherever present, has been able to sustain e-governance by meaningfully linking the micro to the macro and heritage to the horizon.
