(2003) Environmental Governance in Europe

Edited book – Louis Meuleman, Ingeborg Niestroy and Christian Hey (Eds.). Background Study and Proceedings of the 11th Annual Conference, Florence 2003. RMNO/ EEAC series, Background Study n.1,  the Hague, 2003.

This book combines the proceedings of the 11th EEAC Annual Conference of EEAC and RMNO with the European Universty Institute in Florence, the joint EEAC work there, and advice of individual EEAC councils and staff. Some contributions emphasise more the potential of self-regulatory approaches, while others emphasise the strengths of a state-centered approach. There is however a strong consensus that the governance debate should not lead to substitution of one approach by another, but to broadening the spectrum of options.  Download
