Der Cardoso-Bericht zur Beteiligung der Zivilgesellschaft im System der Vereinten Nationen

The United Nations (UN) are in a crisis not least because of their lack of democratic legitimacy: too many of the member countries are non-democratic, and internal procedures in the UN are unnecessarily closed to public debate and scrutiny. 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

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

Wilton Park British German Forum 2005 - Britain and Germany and the USA: Friends Reunited?

In light of the Iraq war, divergent climate change policies, trade negotiations and the fight against international terrorism, the transatlantic relationship between the European Union, its respective member states, and the USA have been put to the test in recent years. On 11-15 July 2005, the "Britain and Germany and the USA: Friends Reunited?" question was discussed at the 20th Wilton Park British German Forum (BGF). Dr. Camilla Bausch, Senior Fellow at Ecologic and member of the Ecologic Legal Team, was nominated by the British Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) to take part in this year’s BGF.

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

EG-Kompetenzen bei völkerrechtlichen Verträgen im Umweltbereich unter besonderer Berücksichtigung des OSPAR-Übereinkommens

The EC increasingly participates in multilateral environmental agreements alongside its Member States. The appearance of both EC and Member States raises questions of competences for the negotiation, conclusion and implementation of such international instruments. In particular in the field of marine environment, substantial progress is hindered by an opaque division of competences between the EC and its Member States and lack of coordination. Accordingly, the German Federal Environmental Agency commissioned Ecologic and Professor Astrid Epiney with the task of analysing the division of external competences between the EC and its Member States taking into account the OSPAR-Convention. The results of this project have now been published as a book.Read more

Nach dem Weltgipfel für Nachhaltige Entwicklung

Der doppelte Nexus zwischen Nachhaltiger Entwicklung, Globalisierung und Sicherheit
Nature protection policy and environmental measures within development and international cooperation play a central role in conflicts over resources. Since the mid-nineties the topic of globalization was making all the headlines. Since September 2001, global security has dominated the international agenda. Against the background of this development a special meaning is given to global environmental governance as well as the development of the concept of sustainability. A paper by Sascha Müller-Kraenner and Uwe Brendle.Read more

EC External Competences

November 2002 to May 2003
The EC increasingly participates in international conferences and mixed international agreements alongside its Member States. The appearance of both EC and Member States raises questions of competences for the negotiation, conclusion and implementation of such international instruments. In particular in the field of marine environment, substantial progress is hindered by an opaque division of competences between the EC and its Member States and lack of coordination. Accordingly, the German Federal Environmental Agency commissioned Ecologic with the task of analysing the division of external competences between the EC and its Member States taking into account the OSPAR-Convention.Read more
