'...this excellent edited collection assembled by Peeters and
Deketelaere on the achievements of EU climate change policy is a
very timely publication. They have brought together nineteen
distinguished, mostly European scholars, on climate law and policy
to provide an informative account of the flurry of initiatives.'-
Benjamin J. Richardson, Maastricht Journal of European and
Comparative Law. This book explores the current policy measures
adopted by the EU in order to realize its Kyoto Protocol commitment
and to prepare for further emission reductions after 2012. EU
Climate Change Policy focuses on legal instruments, with emissions
trading at the forefront of the policy package, accompanied by
directives on energy taxation, energy efficiency and renewable
energy. Distinguished authors provide a commentary on each aspect
of the policy measures, discussing both theoretical and practical
aspects. Overall, it is concluded that whilst EU policy is very
'green', it needs to be developed further in a comprehensive and
meaningful way. With discussions on the current state of affairs of
EU climate change policy, and on the issues that may shape its
future agenda, this book will be of great interest to academics,
civil servants, students and stakeholders.
