Industrial zones were only introduced to Vietnam in the
1990s, but even the agrarian Mekong Delta boasts of about
100 zones. What is their environmental impact? While missing
capacity, financing, and regulation is the common diagnosis,
this book reintroduces the structural features of the
Vietnamese state and its economy into its analysis of
wastewater management in the industrial zones. It reveals
the socio-spatial effects of the Vietnamese state
administration system and the State’s utilisation of law and
its ambiguities to express and facilitate multiple
dimensions of socio-spatiality.
