Environmental impact assessment law and practice : The EU and Turkey

Tekayak, Deniz
Since its introduction, Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) has become an important tool for planning, environmental management, environmental decision making and environmental preservation in European Union (EU) and in Turkey as well. This thesis provides an overview of the EU’s and Turkey’s EIA law and practice by discussing current transposition and implementation problems. After discussing socio-economic and cultural reasons which played significant role in transposition and practical application problems in the EU and in Turkey, the thesis lays down measures and mechanisms to improve the effective implementation of the EIA legislation both in Turkey and in the EU.
