Illiberalism and Energy Transitions in Myanmar and Thailand

Abstract

Over the next century most states are likely to face momentous and potentially catastrophic environmental impacts due to climate change. This has made managing energy policy – traditionally focused on delivering energy security and equitable access – much more strenuous. Governments now face an energy policy trilemma: delivering both traditional energy goals while also minimizing greenhouse gas emissions. Most governments have found it difficult to achieve high levels of all three goals at any one time, particularly within the developing countries of Southeast Asia.
