Abstract

This is the third edition (2008) of one of the leading monographs on European environmental law and policy. This book provides an analysis of important legal issues of European environmental law. What are the legal grounds for EC environmental policy and on what principles are directives and regulations based upon? To what extent preclude EC environmental directives more stringent national environmental standards? What are the requirements the Court of Justice has imposed on the Member States implementing environmental directives? To what extent can European environmental law be relied upon and challenged before national courts and the Court of Justice? How do the Treaty rules on the Internal Market and undistorted competition interfere with national environmental policy? The book discusses all major environmental directives and regulations, integrating important judgments of the Court of Justice on their interpretation. Various national case law on the application of European environmental law is being taken into account.

Keywords: EU law, environmental law, environmental policy
