An attempt at a detailed analysis of all main aspects characterising the design and implementation of voluntary approaches in environmental policy, this book contains both theoretical analyses and case studies. The chapters of this book therefore provide a useful assessment of the main features and of the potential implementation problems of a new, important and promising environmental policy instrument.
From the reviews: "Carlo Carraro and Francois Leveque's book is one of the first wide-ranging and serious endeavors to delineate voluntary approaches, analyze their effectiveness, explore the possibilities to enhance their performance, and explain the rationale for voluntary compliance by different stakeholders. ! strongly recommend this book to graduate students, environmental policy scholars, policy practitioners, and those in the private sector interested in the adoption of voluntary approaches. The book provides researchers and stakeholders with theoretical and methodological tools for exploring the conditions under which voluntary agreements work."
