Overview

Several hundred directives on environmental policy have been produced by the European Union. What impact has the output of this "legislative factory" had? After considering how decisions on environmental policy in the EU are made and the balance of power between business and environmental interests, this book looks in depth at the areas of global warming, water pollution, and air pollution.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...an excellent handbook on the development and implementation of European Community environmental policy." —Environment
Booknews
Considers the relative weakness of European Union institutions concerned with environmental policy and the balance of power between business interests and environmental groups, against a background in which the EU is trying to move away from a "legislative factory" approach towards new types of policy instruments. Discusses the globalized context of environmental policy, touching on global warming and water and air pollution, and discusses issues of policy effectiveness. Grant teaches politics at the University of Warwick. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
