Lees, C. ORCID: 0000-0002-3517-2211 (2007). Environmental Policy in the United Kingdom and Germany. German Politics, 16(1), pp. 164-183. doi: 10.1080/09644000601157640


The essay examines developments within environmental policy making in the United Kingdom and the Federal Republic of Germany and asks: (i) can we identify patterns of convergence and/or divergence between the two countries?; and (ii) to what extent does the European integration process impact upon these patterns? It uses an historical institutionalist framework within which to frame the analysis.
