The implementation of EU environmental law in Scotland

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    Analyses the extent to which the formal and informal processes for the implementation of EC environmental law in Scotland enable independent decision-making consistent with the principle of devolution. Assesses Scotland's involvement in the development of EC environmental law. Examines the power-sharing arrangements under the Scotland Act 1998 for the implementation of EC law. Discusses, with reference to a legislative review and the findings of interviews with regulators and civil servants, the prevailing presumptions concerning who should legislate to implement the law and how these influence the legislative form and content. © 2011 Sweet & Maxwell
