Conflicting Integration

The Environmental Law of the European Union

By Elli Louka

This book provides a comprehensive explanatory framework for understanding the European Community environmental law. It looks behind the technicalities of the European Union environmental law as it explains the purpose and effects of Community's rulemaking. The proposed explanatory framework is used to analyze several environmental issues such as air pollution, water pollution, waste management and biodiversity protection as well as strategic, planning and economic instruments and to provide normative direction for the future development of EC law. This book is innovative in that it examines environmental issues from both a Community and an international perspective exploring the inter-connection between International Law and Community rulemaking. This book is an indispensable source for those who wish to understand EC environmental law, students, scholars and practitioners of EC law, environmental law, international law and policy.
