Case study: European Governance and Waste of Electrical and Electronic management
| Publications| 10/12/2002

This paper analizes the writing up and aproval process of the European Union Directive on waste from electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE). This analysis shows that European Union faces many challenges in its policy-making processes. Not all stakeholders affected by the European directive have the same chances to introduce their points of view. Lobbying system although has some intrinsic non-democratic roots is able to affect the final directive. This paper pays special attention to the quality and transparency of the approval process, and contains a study of some of the environmental, and economic consequences of the governance process problem.
