Environmental Protection and the Rule of Law

Environmental Protection and the Rule of Law

(p.1) 1 Environmental Protection and the Rule of Law
Making Law Matter
Stanford University Press

This chapter begins with a discussion of environmental regulation in developing countries. Environmental regulation refers to the set of rules developed by regulatory agencies to implement environmental laws. The common wisdom is that environmental regulation in developing countries often does not work, mainly because of the mismatch in political strength between interests that oppose environmental regulation and interests that favor it. The chapter then turns to prosecutorial enforcement in Brazil, describing how public prosecutors became significant actors in the enforcement of environmental laws and regulations. An overview of the subsequent chapters is also presented.

Keywords:   environmental law, developing country, Brazil, public prosecutors, prosecutorial enforcement
