European Enviromental Law Series
As mentioned by Michael I. Jeffery, Q.C, in his book review of Patricia Birnie’s book International Law & the Environment (New York: Oxford University Press, 2009), “in the last three to five years, public fixation with climate change has served as a catalyst for the remarkably rapid expansion in the literature associated with this relatively new discipline of law, which has only existed since the 1960s”.
Conscious of this development and more specifically the role of comparative environmental law in the development of an effective global environmental protection and management system, the European Environmental Law Series was created in 2009. Its aim is to produce a series of books, monographs and essays purporting to contribute, through research or reflection thereby taking place, to the creation of an International and European Environmental Law. Particular concern is given to the systematic study of the different aspects of national legal systems in the Member States of the European Union, in the European Union itself and worldwide, as well as of their evolution and their convergence.
