The paper uses research to analyze the different ways in which environmental policy-making in the EU has been influenced by domestic factors in the member states. The writer finds that public awareness in the 1970s and the success of the Greens in some countries affected the EU. The paper cites case studies of Germany, Denmark, the UK and Spain.

From the Paper:

"The European Union as known today originated from the need of West European countries for a regional arrangement to facilitate their economic development. The European Coal and Steel Community (ECSC), the European Economic Community (EEC) and the European Atomic Energy Community (EURATOM) created by the founding Treaties of the European Communities were created as functional agencies only in charge of the coordination of national, economic strategies in designated sectors, whether they will lead to a supranational body or not. The Treaty of Rome in 1957 did not include any articles that made specific reference to the creation of an environmental policy, which originally was thought to be potentially detrimental to the economic development."
