Abstract

In this article, I discuss the Aarhus Convention, an international treaty to which the EU and all its Member States are party. The article considers how this convention has been implemented and applied by the EU, concentrating on the first and third 'pillars' of the Convention (access to information and access to justice respectively).

Keywords: international law, EU law, environmental law, access to justice
