EU Environmental Law is a critical, comprehensive and engaging account of the essential and emerging issues in European environmental law and regulation today. Suitable for advanced undergraduate and postgraduate students, the book delivers a thematic and contextual treatment of the subject for those taking courses in environmental law, environmental studies, regulation and public policy, and government and international relations. Placing the key issues in context, EU Environmental Law takes an interdisciplinary and thematic approach to help students to better understand the implementation and enforcement of environmental law and policy across Europe. It offers an accessible overview, and links theory with practical applications that will allow students to contextualise the outcomes of legal rules and their impact on public and private behaviours. It provides a definitive account of the subject, examining traditional topics such as nature conservation law, waste law and water law, alongside increasingly important fields such as the law of climate change, environmental human rights law, and regulation of GMOs and nanotechnology.

Recensioner i media

'This essential text for students of EU environmental law locates substantive and increasingly vital areas of the law, ranging from climate change to nature conservation, in a highly contextual setting centred on the governance of law and science. By providing a nicely weighted backdrop of the actors and institutions at play in EU environmental law and the principles which influence their action, the text is able to provide compelling and critical accounts of both procedural and substantive rights and issues at the heart of environmental protection in the European Union.' Robert Lee, Birmingham University

'This is a major contribution to the literature in terms of clarity, scope and analytical depth. It will certainly be an important resource for academics and practitioners working in the field. At a time when many have lost sight of the value of EU law, this book reminds us of the reach and sophistication of EU environmental law, which the rest of the world sees as a model.' Jorge E. Viuales, University of Cambridge
