Welcome to the UCL European Institute, UCL's hub for research, collaboration and information on Europe and the European Union.
Juncker’s nomination was not a sudden, not an unexpected and not even a distinct event. Neither does it spell
an end to the European Council’s dominance in constitutional politics or

Despite “shocks” & “earthquakes” that took place at the national

The implementation of regulatory policy is central to protecting our environment and our natural resources. Whether businesses comply with environmental regulations depends heavily on the design and enforcement of such regulations. The European Union has long had a reputation for high standards coupled with flexible enforcement that makes for more cooperative compliance, but some scholars argue that the European Union’s system of checks and balances and its expansion of judicially-enforceable rights are leading its policies down a path of legalistic and rigid enforcement standards. I examine these claims and what they mean for the future of environmental protection in the European Union and beyond.
