Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


In this project, the reasons why the EU’s water framework directive, has not been fully implemented in Denmark, is examined, using Winter & Nielsen’s integrated implementation model and the theories of implementation of EU-directives and causes for non-transposition, by Falkner et al. and Versluis. The project contains an analysis of the policy-design of the directive and the Danish law, “miljømålsloven”, the decision chain and the enforcement. It is concluded, on the basis of rational judgment cf. critical realism, that the reasons for the implementation deficit are a bad policy-design, administrative flaws and an extensive public reform. These are however only tendencies.
