A New Beginning for Environmental Governance: The UK Withdrawal from the European Union (Continuity) (Scotland) Act 2021

Colin Reid (Lead / Corresponding author)

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Prof Reid examines the UK Withdrawal from the European Union (Continuity) (Scotland) Act 2021, which marks a new beginning in environmental governance in Scotland. It embeds environmental principles in Scots law and establishes a new environmental “watchdog”, Environmental Standards Scotland. The Act does more than just fill the gaps created by leaving the European Union, requiring both an environmental policy strategy and a broad review of the effectiveness of environmental governance arrangements.
