Abstract
  • This thesis aims to make a contribution to the economic and political literature on (solutions to) environmental pollution issues by indentifying the variables which significantly affect environmental performance. This thesis revisits the socioeconomic, political, and institutional variables that studies of the period in which environmental mobilization was first gaining momentum (1970-1990) report significant for affecting outcomes in environmental performance. It finds that the independent variables corporatism, geographic advantage, and income are significant in explaining variations in environmental performance across the 17 industrial democracies covered in this thesis.
