Environmental Policy and Law in Multilevel Systems

This research cluster was established in 2010. Since environmental problems usually have local, national, transnational, and dimensions, the Institute investigates whether and how the management and conservation of natural resources, as well as the protection of the environment, are guaranteed both at different governmental levels and, from a comparative perspective, in different legal systems.

The main research fields covered so far are: the management and protection of water resources; public participation in the environmental decision-making procedures; the protection of biodiversity and ecological connectivity; the improvement and harmonization of low carbon policies and strategies; the impact of EU environmental law on the Italian national and regional/provincial legislation; the division of legislative competences between the Italian state and regions/autonomous provinces.

Beyond basic research, a number of third-party (EU and Autonomous Province of Bolzano/Bozen) funded projects and consultancies have been carried out.

Furthermore, environmental protection being an interdisciplinary field, many activities were carried out in collaboration with other EURAC Institutes (Institute for Renewable Energy and Institute for Regional Development and Location Management). More recent activities also overlap with other research clusters of the institute (e.g. South Tyrolean Autonomy in Context and Institutional Innovation and Participatory Democracy).
