Future European Environmental Policy and Subsidiarity

Proceedings of an International Conference organized by the European Society for Environment and Development (ESED)


Mark Dubrulle

The Maastricht Treaty states that, on the basis of the subsidiarity principle, «the Community should not do what Member States can do». But how will it be applied to environmental matters? Will all EU legislation have to be deregulated? Can it be envisaged that only recommendations or guidelines will be issued? Will, in the end, the quality of the environment overall really benefit from this situation?
