Dependent Convergence : The Struggle to Control Petrochemical Hazards in Brazil and the United States Paperback / softback
Comparative analyses of social actors and policy outcomes in Bahia and Texas show the similarities and differences in the actors and the policies adopted in each case.
As a result of historical and structural developments in Bahia and Texas, Cetrel operates under pollution-control standards and technologies for protecting the environment and workers that are similar to those of the GCA.
This convergent trend is characterized as dependent convergence between developing and developed countries.
The author makes recommendations for stronger international solidarity among progressive forces in developed and developing countries to promote preventive alternatives to pollution control.
