Access to Justice in Environmental Matters and the Role of NGO's

Empirical Findings and Legal Appraisal

By Nicolas De Sadeleer, Gerhard Roller, Miriam Dross

The Avosetta Series contains texts that present innovative discourse on European environmental law. This book, sixth in the series, is based on the findings of a research study on Access to Justice in Environmental Matters that the European Commission had commissioned in 2002 in order to provide input on the preparation of a proposal for a Directive on access to justice. In particular, the book assesses developments and the situation concerning NGO's access to justice in environmental matters in a certain number of Member States. It also presents empirical data on the number of cases brought by environmental associations.
