New Book – “Developments in Environmental Regulation – Risk Based Regulation in the UK and Europe”

The book, “Developments in Environmental Regulation – Risk Based Regulation in the UK and Europe” provides a critical examination of contemporary approaches to environmental regulation in the UK and the European Union. It also explores how regulation has evolved in response to a number of factors, including industrial development and improved scientific knowledge, while considering the radical next steps that need to be taken in response to existing challenges. 

Expirea Director Adrian Kesterson wrote the chapter on “Implementing the Industrial Emissions Directive: The UK Environmental Permitting Regime for High-Risk Activities”.

This edited collection has been written by a group of highly experienced regulatory specialists whose insightful perspectives on key areas of environmental regulation are situated at the core of this work.  This book will appeal to students and academics, policy-makers and environmental practitioners interested in understanding how environmental policy and regulation is applied and how it can be adapted to its political context.

The book is edited by Jon Foreman, with chapters by Martin Bigg, Jonathon Fisher, Chris Booth, Edward Lockhart-Mummery, Jon Foreman, Adrian Kesterson, Ken Westlake and Duncan Giddens.
