Environmental Regulation in a Federal System

Environmental Regulation in a Federal System

Framing Environmental Policy in the European Union

New Horizons in Environmental Economics series

Tim Jeppesen

In this important book Tim Jeppesen investigates environmental regulation in a federal system and addresses the underlying question of whether regulation should be decided centrally, by EU institutions, or de-centrally, by individual member states. Whilst simple economic reasoning presumes that transboundary externalities require central solutions and local externalities need local solutions, the author finds that the real answer is much more complicated.
