Development and Implementation of Baltic Sea Pollution Commitments: The Case of Sweden

  • Ronnie Hjorth
Chapter

Abstract

This chapter explores the Swedish implementation of Baltic Sea pollution commitments with an emphasis on the pattern of participation among various actor-groups.1 There is a long history of Swedish commitments to the Baltic Sea environment, and the types of commitment implemented have changed over time. Hence the chapter initially specifies three main phases of Baltic Sea environmental co-operation, involving three different types of commitment.
