Agenda-Dynamics in the European Politics of Land: Explaining the Soil Protection Gap

Explaining the EU's Green Dynamism

Combining the joint-decision trap model with the major theories of European integration, this project examines how the EU can be an environmental pace-maker, when it virtually depends on the agreement of all member states. The project looks into the bargaining dynamics of recent EU legislation at the nexus of energy, climate, and environmental policy. It includes case-studies on the first CO2 emission standards for passenger cars, the phase-out of incandescent light bulbs, and the energy efficiency directive.
