Evaluating the impact of austerity upon environmental policy in Europe

This project investigates whether the global financial crisis has had an impact on environmental policy, taking the European Union as a case study. The team will analyse EU and state-level policies. “The main rationale for the project is that previous economic crises have generally had a negative effect upon the environment,” said Charlotte Burns, a lecturer in the department of environment. “Over the long term the economy tends to take precedence over environmental policy with knock-on effects upon policy ambitions.” The team hopes to develop a way to measure environmental policy change in response to the crisis, and to provide data on whether and how policy change has occurred as a consequence.
