Show synopsis This completely updated and revised third edition on European environmental law takes into account new case law of the Court of Justice, as well as recent environmental directives and regulations. The book provides an in-depth analysis of important legal issues. What are the legal grounds for EC environmental policy and upon what principles are directives and regulations based? To what extent do EC environmental directives preclude more stringent national environmental standards? What requirements has the Court of Justice imposed on the Member States in the implementation of environmental directives? To what extent can European environmental law be relied upon and challenged before national courts and the Court of Justice? How do the Treaty rules on the internal market and on undistorted competition interfere with national environmental policy? European Environmental Law answers these questions.
