About this book

Outlining the results of a three-country study, this text examines the impact of EU policy on the domestic, political and institutional environment. It tests ideas about new forms of governance that reflect the values of participation and empowerment of local interests, particularly through a close scrutiny of the environmental impact process. The book also analyzes the responses of the business sector in three countries - Germany, Greece and Great Britain - to the introduction of a voluntary environmental management system, the eco-management and audit scheme. The data collected brings to light the differences in responding to EU policy in a federal state, in a rapidly modernizing patronage state, and in a highly centralized unitary state. Through these comparisons, the robustness of the notions underpinning new forms of governance are tested and, in a number of respects, found wanting.
