Institutional interaction - how to prevent conflicts and enhance synergies between international and eu environmental institutions (INTERACTION)

Objective

The project examines the interaction between international and EU environmental institutions. Such interaction affects the effectiveness of international and EU environmental policy-making. The core of the project is made up of twelve case studies analysing inter-institutional conflicts and synergies generated or suffered by a) five important international environmental regimes (climate change, biodiversity, protection of the North Atlantic, High Seas fisheries management, CITES) and GATT/WTO, and b) six important European environmental directives (habitats, water framework, IPPC, air quality framework, environmental liability and deliberate-release directives). Of particular concern will be the vertical interaction between international and EU instruments. Case studies will rely on a common theoretical concept. Their comparative evaluation will produce generalised knowledge on institutional interaction and specific policy recommendations.
