Main findings of dissertation
  • "Within the regulatory process, the question of who does what is determinative for what is eventually done and how."
  • "When we internalize environmental and social costs, 'expensive' abatement soon becomes more affordable than 'cheap' pollution."
  • "As evidenced by the EU ETS, achieving optimal competence allocation during the introduction of a new regulatory regime is more difficult than improving an existing regime."
  • "In order to develop successful (climate) policy on Earth, we first need to disprove the believe that economists are from Mars and lawyers are from Venus."
  • "De moderne wetenschapper moet niet bang zijn het podium te verlaten en tussen het publiek te gaan staan."
  • "Competence Allocation within the EU ETS is moving closer to the theoretical optimum of regional implementation and enforcement, but away from the optimum of global norm setting."
