Instituting Environmental Protection: From Red to Green in Poland

Overview

Under socialism, Poland suffered massive environmental destruction. After socialism, Poland's environmental performance has improved remarkably.

Overview

Under socialism, Poland suffered massive environmental destruction. After socialism, Poland's environmental performance has improved remarkably. This book explains that system-specific institutions of how socialism undermined environmental protection by creating regulatory conflicts of interest that led the Party/state to soften budget and law constraints on polluters. Those problems have diminished in post-Communist Poland as socialist legal, political and economic institutions have been replaced by liberal-democratic institutions and competitive markets. The analysis includes important implications for an institutional theory of environmental protection.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Cole (law, U. School of Law in Indianapolis) argues that system- specific institutions of socialism impeded effective environmental protection by creating regulatory conflicts of interest for the Party/state and that in post-Communist Poland the government's regulatory conflict of interest has been diminished and pollution has therefore decreased. Cole examines the history of environmental law in Poland from the 1920s to the present, the enforceability of those environmental laws within the socialist legal framework, enforcement problems caused by party politics and socialist economics, the ideological relationship between Marxism and the environment, the transition to post-Communist environmental protection, and implications of the Polish case to other Eastern European countries as well as to capitalism in general.
