This title was first published in 2002. Environmental Policy is an astute and far-reaching text which analyzes the intersections between environmental policy formation and its ultimate implementation and enforcement through the law. It sets this theme against the axis of EU law and policy and UK law and policy, paying particular attention to the variables which determine the nature and significance of law as a delivery vehicle. Among these variables are the shape and character of EU and UK law for present purposes, alternatives to law, and the culture of UK law and policy aiding a distinct pattern of response to Directives, for example. It takes an informed look at the reality of implementation and enforcement through its reference to policy objectives as well as the limits and appropriateness of law across the aforementioned axis. An indispensable resource for scholars and students of environmental law and policy, along with governmental and other environmental agencies responsible for policy creation, implementation and enforcement.


’Neil Hawke excels at lucidly drawing together materials from a broad diversity of sources and linking them by themes which always prompt reflective thought…' Professor Brian Jones, Herbert Smith College, London ’This book provides a comprehensive and informative examination of how environmental policy and law is developed at both the national and international levels. As such it represents a valuable addition to the environmental library and its publication will therefore be welcomed by all those with an interest in this area.’ Neil Parpworth, De Montfort University, UK ’Readers with an interest in international and comparative environmental law and policy…will find Environmental Policy to be an astute and valuable contribution to scholarship on the relationship between law and policy.’ International Environmental Agreements: Politics, Law and Economics
