TL;DR: Wang et al. as mentioned in this paper explored three dimensions of institutional trust in China: trust in administrative institutions, trust in legal institutions, and trust in societal institutions, showing that institutional trust is more than a product of traditional values in China Rather, it is more of an individual rational choice based heavily on the evaluations of the institutional performance.
Abstract: While democratic countries have been concerned about a “trust crisis” since the 1960s, China surprisingly displays a very high level of public trust in institutions Why do people trust institutions and to what extent does institutional trust in China differ from that in democracies? Using the 2004 China Values and Ethics Survey, this article explores three different dimensions of institutional trust in China: trust in administrative institutions, trust in legal institutions, and trust in societal institutions The analysis shows that institutional trust is more than a product of traditional values in China Rather, it is more of an individual rational choice based heavily on the evaluations of the institutional performance, and it is also a result of government-controlled politicization Trust in administrative institutions, in particular, mainly comes from satisfactory institutional performance Institutional trust has a great impact on the development of democracy and legal participation in China

TL;DR: In this paper, the authors explored the impact of globalization on China's environmental activism by analyzing the development of Chinese environmental activism and assessing its links with the transnational environmental movement, and concluded that Chinese environmental activists have been actively interacting with the Transnational Environmental Movement, and this has influenced the identification of their issues of concern and the developing of their strategies.
Abstract: This article explores the impact of globalization on China’s environmental activism by analyzing the development of Chinese environmental activism and assessing its links with the transnational environmental movement. It uses the case of Beijing to examine the characteristics, evolution, organizational development, and environmental identity of a green community. Two influential campaigns are presented and compared to illustrate the different movement repertoires employed, which are related to the extent that Chinese environmentalists are involved in the transnational environmental movement. The article concludes that Chinese environmental activists have been actively interacting with the transnational environmental movement, and this has influenced the identification of their issues of concern and the development of their strategies. However, Chinese involvement in the transnational environmental movement is still limited, owing to China’s political conditions as well as the movement’s early stage of development.

TL;DR: This article argued that the underlying paradox of South Korea's multiculturalism is the continued and reinforced real and perceived belief in an exclusive racial and ethnic nationalism, and outlined developments where this problematic is being addressed and challenged from civil society movements.
Abstract: The article discusses the development of multiculturalism in South Korea. The article argues that as South Korea imports multicultural approaches from overseas, the implementation of policies is cultivating unintended consequences that often run counter to the original intentions. The continuing assumptions and reinforced divisions between Koreans and “foreigners” remain in much of the literature and policy making on multiculturalism in South Korea. There have been critical assessments of multiculturalism from South Korean academics. However, the underlying paradox of South Korea's multiculturalism is the continued and reinforced real and perceived belief in an exclusive racial and ethnic nationalism. The article outlines developments where this problematic is being addressed and challenged from civil society movements.

TL;DR: In this article, the authors empirically test the relationship between the level of corruption and FDI attractiveness in eight non-OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development) Asian countries (Bangladesh, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Pakistan, Philippines, Sri Lanka, and Thailand) using data for the perceived corruption level available from Political Risk Services, a private international investment risk service company, for 1984-2004.
Abstract: There have been debates on how political corruption may affect foreign direct investment (FDI) attractiveness. Some scholars argue that corruption increases economic uncertainty due to arbitrariness and thereby affects FDI negatively. On the other hand, another group of scholars contends that corruption leads to greater FDI because it can create a business environment that is more friendly to foreign investors. In this article, we empirically test the relationship between the level of corruption and FDI attractiveness in eight non-OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development) Asian countries (Bangladesh, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Pakistan, Philippines, Sri Lanka, and Thailand) using data for the perceived corruption level (according to the International Country Risk Guide data set) available from Political Risk Services, a private international investment risk service company, for 1984–2004. The analysis reveals that corruption in non-OECD countries in Asia generally harms FDI attractiveness.
