This book is based on an FR6 Research project – Governance for Sustainability – and constitutes one of the main outputs of the project. The book develops a highly original and innovative analytical model for the study of governance and knowledge and their inter-relationship with specific reference to sustainability. In order to systematically investigate these relationships it examines the development of European policies on Strategic Environmental Assessment, Air Pollution Control and the Emissions Trading System. In particular it focuses on the multi-level governance context (from European to national and local levels) and the potential synergies between new governance modes and different forms of knowledge. The conclusions drawn are based on detailed cross-national and comparative research drawing on 19 case studies from nine European countries (UK, Germany, Italy, Hungary, the Netherlands, Poland, Sweden, Greece and Norway). The book represents a major contribution to the literature on governance, knowledge and sustainability.
