Short content

This course aims to explore the legal and policy dimensions of the EU action in the field of environment, taking into account and highlighting close interactions between its internal and external dimensions. International, EU and national perspectives will be employed to study environmental governance. Thus, on the one hand, the module will trace how global commitments influence the development of EU environmental law and policy and how this is further trickled down to the national level, and on the other hand, attention will be drawn to the ways in which the EU (and its Member States) seek to influence the global environmental regimes. At the same time, the EU’s internal policy-making will be studied; from the EU’s competences in environmental matters broadly defined and instruments that the EU avails of to pursue the objectives.
