Compliance and enforcement is a fundamental issue within environmental law. But despite its pertinence, it is an area that has been neglected in academic research. Addressing this gap, this timely book considers the circumstances under which networking can increase the effectiveness of environmental enforcement. Presenting a general theory of how and why networking can increase the effectiveness of environmental enforcement, expert contributors ascertain the potential benefits of environmental enforcement networks. Specific criteria and benchmarks are provided, indicating under which circumstances networking may increase the competency of environmental enforcement. The book explores theoretical and empirical discussions of the benefits of networks, offering a discerning assessment of enforcement networks' influence on environmental protection. It also examines issue based examples of networks, such as networks dealing with transboundary waste or wildlife. In addition to this, environmental enforcement in particular areas, such as the US, Europe, Australia or Africa, is considered. Academics in environmental law and policy will benefit from this thorough overview of an important phenomenon. In addition, practitioners and policy makers will appreciate the valuable insights presented.

MEDIA REVIEWS
`For some time now, environmental enforcement networks have been part of the very fabric of environmental law. Yet, academic research has somewhat neglected them. This book is a game-changer. It shows just how "smart" enforcement networks have become, and indeed need to be, in the never-ending struggle for effectiveness of environmental protection: they operate horizontally or vertically, locally and globally, top-down and bottom-up, often through citizens engagement and always in search for greater effectiveness. The book's contributions from a wide range of environmental scholars and professionals give the impression of a fascinating new development, i.e. the increasing role of civil society in global environmental governance.' -- Klaus Bosselmann, University of Auckland, New Zealand
`This book is a fascinating and original study of a little known phenomenon of environmental enforcement networks. In 26 chapters of this volume the reader is presented with ample examples of environmental enforcement networks in the world. The editors of this book achieved a great success in presenting this question in almost all continents. The contributing authors of this book, theorists and practitioners, present an in-depth overview of the role of networks in compliance with environmental obligations. It is a very well-informed and honest book, from which a very complex picture of enforcement networks emerges. This volume is one of the most important and indispensable contributions to understanding the problem of the enforcement of environmental law in general.' -- Malgosia Fitzmaurice, Queen Mary University of London, UK
`This book describes and analyses the various ways in which networking can increase the effectiveness of environmental enforcement both nationally and internationally and the circumstances under which networks are most likely to be effective. In doing so it provides a valuable addition to the academic literature on the effectiveness of environmental enforcement, particularly where it provides multi-disciplinary and comparative perspectives.' -- Neil Gunningham, Australian National University, Australia
