Bibliographic information


“This book is successful in its goal of offering an empirical understanding of the Europeanisation of environmental governance in the Western Balkans. Its well-articulated arguments and intensive empirical research make the book a crucial contribution to the recent literature on the ‘domestic turn’ in the Western Balkans and will help readers better comprehend the Europeanisation process in that region. This book will definitely be of interest to students of international relations, comparative European politics and environmental politics.” (Alper Almaz, Europe-Asia Studies, Vol. 69 (10), December, 2017)
