[Extract] This volume has explored the siting of unwanted facilities in the Asia-Pacific region. It has done this by analysing several cases in the context of a theory of knowledge production and utilisation and the relationship between the two. It suggests that siting has become a national policy issue in the region, despite the diversity of nations, and that there is a need to bring the Asia-Pacific siting experience more explicitly into the growing comparative literature on siting. The chapters of this volume reveal that the Asia-Pacific experience can contribute to a better theoretical and comparative understanding of siting and that it can provide useful insights for policy makers and practitioners on siting processes and their outcomes. They also illustrate that the literature makes several assumptions with respect to the relationship between spillover effects and the scope of the community and decision processes and outcomes. This chapter concludes that the literature needs to redefine the relationship between spillover effects and the nature of community and the relationship between those effects and decisions if we are to enhance our understanding and management of siting disputes.
