0 Reviews
This book analyzes the impact of new policy instruments and more participatory forms of governance on closing the implementation gap in EU environmental policy and situates these new approaches in the general conceptual debate on effective implementation and compliance. The volume is the first to offer a comprehensive assessment of the factors affecting the implementation performance of varying policy instruments. It addresses the topic from an innovative theoretical perspective, combining implementation theories with institutionalist approaches.
