Nigel Haigh reflects on the history of EU environmental policy

At a November seminar organised by the Studium Catholicum in Helsinki, former IEEP Executive Director Nigel Haigh set out some personal views on the development of EU environmental policy, linking it with the messages in Pope Francis’s encyclical “Laudato si’”.

Looking to the future, Haigh underlines the message that we need bold leadership, a strong legal framework, and stronger international responses – and looks to the EU to deliver them.
