About this book

This volume explores the impact of the twin process of democratisation and marketisation on the environment in East Central Europe. Three environmental matters are investigated: how the twin processes of change have effected (1) the physical environment (2) the expression of environmental interest and (3) the effectiveness of environmental management policies. The book also examines the role of the European Union because of the influence it exercises on environmental policy in East Central Europe. The book finds that political and economic instability and external pressures have displaced environmental considerations from central stage. This has meant a failure within East Central Europe to realise a more far-reaching and more sustainable approach towards the management of transition.
