Madison, Wisconsin

Numerous states and cities have learning alliances, agreements and partnerships for improving environmental policies and practices.  These arrangements often begin with one or two visits, and then die slow deaths due to their extensive workload, limited funding and the transition of employee. For its International Ecological Policy Dialogue on 18 to 20 June 2007 in Madison, Wisconsin, the US Multi-State Working Group on Environmental Performance (MSWG) invited R. Andreas Kraemer to present European experience with policy learning processes as well as sketch the outlines of a strongerRead more

Future Direction of a Sustainable European Neighbourhood Policy

March 2006 to May 2006
The European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP) seeks to create a system of graduated co-operation and association contracts. The core will be a pan-European internal market. However, the integration of other policies, most notably in the areas of security co-operation, energy and the environment, play a crucial role. Other geopolitical actors like Russia will compete with the EU on the concepts that will define the common European space of the future. Read more

Nach dem Gaskonflikt

Ost-westliche Energieverknüpfungen
For the Russian government, the export of oil and gas is not just a good business deal. The gas conflict with the Ukraine, with which the Russian leadership announced the new year and its G-8 presidency, showed that the Kremlin’s energy policy is at the core of its foreign policy – one that makes clear old power claims in the post-Soviet realm and beyond. Sascha Müller-Kraenner writes on east-west energy alliances in Kommune 1/2006. The article is available for download.Read more

A panel of eminent experts led by Fernando Enrique Cardoso made proposals for reform. In a contribution to a book on the rule of international law in a globalised world, R. Andreas Kraemer assesses the panel's proposals.Read more

European Neighbourhood Policy

Challenges for the Environment and Energy Policy
With the European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP), the European Union aims to redefine the relationships between itself and the new neighbours it acquired in the EU Enlargement of 2004. Economic integration remains at the heart of the ENP, but increased co-operation in the areas of environmental and energy policy is addressed as well. This Ecologic Newsletter by Sascha Müller-Kraenner examines this important issue and also surveys questions that the EU and its new neighbours will need to address together. Read more
