Over recent decades national environmental policies have become increasingly alike. This book analyses the driving forces of this process of policy convergence, providing an in-depth empirical analysis of the international forces at work. It does so by investigating how four countries - France, Hungary, Mexico and the Netherlands - have shaped their domestic environmental policies in the context of international institutions and relationships, while taking into account various domestic factors and national conditions. Employing a qualitative approach, the authors seek to deepen understanding of the processes and mechanisms through which international forces such as legal harmonisation, institutionalised information flows and global trade dynamics affect domestic environmental policy change. Together with its companion volume Environmental Policy Convergence in Europe: The Impact of Trade and International Institutions (2008) this book provides a 'showcase' of mixed methodologies, combining quantitative and qualitative approaches in an innovative way.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'We have long suspected that environmental policies are growing more similar, but systematic explanations have always eluded us. This intelligently designed book addresses this gap by blending quantitative and qualitative sources in a most novel and enlightening way. I do not think you will read a better edited book on environmental policy for a long time.' Professor Andrew Jordan, University of East Anglia
'This comprehensive and theoretically sophisticated volume makes a significant contribution to our understanding of the complex domestic and international dynamics of environmental policy convergence. Its national and policy focused case studies are well-researched and highly informative.' Professor David Vogel, University of California, Berkeley
