Summary

This title was first published in 2002: The adoption of the 1999 Gothenburg Protocol within the Convention on Long-Range Transboundary Air Pollution (CLRTAP) and the 2001 EU National Emission Ceilings (NEC) directive has made for much stronger European air pollution policies. This volume offers the first in-depth analysis available of this key development. Central questions discussed include: -What role did the three new Green member states joining the EU in 1995 play in this development? -Will these significantly stronger policies only be followed by weaker implementation? -Why are the EU emission ceilings more ambitious than those of CLRTAP? -Do these more ambitious EU NEC emission ceilings and wider trends such as EU enlargement signal that CLRTAP is fading away as a central forum for European policy development? Decision makers, negotiators and international and non-governmental organizations will benefit from this book as it discusses important institutional issues. Students and academics will also find it extremely useful.
