Dealing with continuous reform : Towards adaptive EA policy systems in countries in transition

Cherp, Aleg LU and Antypas, Alexios (2003) In Journal of Environmental Assessment Policy and Management 5(4). p.455-476
Abstract

Environmental assessment (EA)1 systems in the countries-in-transition (CITs) in Central and Eastern Europe, Caucasus and Central Asia have been significantly reformed over the last decade. Considerable research efforts have focused on the degree to which EA in this region conforms to best international practice, functions well and results in environmental and democratic improvements. This article examines the evolution of such research and proposes to expand its agenda and methodology to include a policy-systems approach that would more accurately take account of the complexity of EA systems, especially in the constantly changing and institutionally volatile environment of the CITs.
