Bridging Divides - Transformation in Eastern Europe: Connecting Energy and Environment

Refocusing the Transformation Process in Central and Eastern European Countries (CEEC) and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS)

Baden-Baden Nomos Verlagsgesellschaft, December 1997, 309 Pages ISBN 3-7890-5212-4 [AMP, Bd. 52]

The transformation process in the countries of Central and Eastern Europe and the Former Soviet Union is developing neither with the same speed nor consistently across political and socio-economic dimension. Whereas monetary reform has advanced quite significantly, other important areas, like energy and the environment as well as social policy, have lagged behind.

This book investigates the reasons behind the lag of energy-related environmental policy progress from national as well as international perspectives. It offers a win-win strategy for bridging the divide between energy and environmental policies by shifting traditional forms of project funding to more innovative regulatory regime-oriented approaches in order to create effective institutional structures.
