The course introduces the main concepts about environmental protection and sustainability (e.g. precautionary principle, emission quotas or integrated management). An analytical framework of environmental regulation is proposed that puts an equal emphasis on procedural mechanisms and substantial rules. This analytical framework is then applied to various sectors (e.g. water, air, climate, sustainable development) and different levels of authority in a comparative perspective (e.g. European Union, The Netherlands, or the Belgian Regions).
