Self-commitment on the collection and recovery of spent batteries and the reduction of mercury content in batteries

Busch, Per-Olof and Helge Jörgens 2002: Self-commitment on the collection and recovery of spent batteries and the reduction of mercury content in batteries. In: Marc De Clerq (ed.), Negotiated environmental agreements in Europe: critical factors for success. Cheltenham: Edward Elgar Publishing, 67-86.

This book aims to further advance analysis on Negotiated Environmental Agreements (NEAs) in a multi-disciplinary and co-ordinated way. The authors advocate increased use of NEAs as policy instruments to deal with environmental problems.  The book analyses, both theoretically and through the example of existing European agreements, the critical factors that can influence the performance of a negotiated environmental agreement. Negotiating Environmental Agreements in Europe contains 12 case studies analysing 12 different negotiated agreements in European countries. These are analysed comparatively in order to examine to what extent the different hypotheses postulated in the book are valid.
