Environmental Regulation in a Federal System

In this text 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. He extends the basic theoretical issues to investigate the challenging problems which arise in the actual determination of policy measures in the context of the EU. This study of both the conceptual and practical dimensions of environmental regulation in a federal system should be useful to economists, political scientists, policymakers and students.

About the Author

Tim Jeppesen, Director, KREVI- Danish Evaluation Institute for Local Governments, Denmark


`. . . the book is well written and shows a delightful mix of formalism and pragmatic policy concerns. I believe the book has adequately presented the various issues in weighing the pros and cons of centralized and decentralized environmental policymaking in various environmental and institutional contexts.' -- Abay Mulatu, Papers in Regional Science `An imaginative book that contributes significantly to the debate on regulatory federalism. The even-handed approach should appeal to a broad audience, including academics, policymakers, and the general reader interested in the optimal institutional arrangements for the provisioning of public goods.' -- John A. List, University of Maryland, College Park, US
