Environmental cooperation between the EU and Korea

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This chapter discusses environmental cooperation between the EU and Korea against the background of the law and practice of the EU's external relations. The analysis identifies environment-related provisions in the EU-Korea Framework Agreement and contrasts them with other bilateral agreements concluded by the EU with third countries. It then considers two means of implementation: political dialogue and EU external funding. By fostering better understanding of the peculiarities and ambitions of the EU's approach to environmental integration in its external relations, the chapter concludes by emphasising the opportunities and limitations of dialogue to strengthen environmental cooperation between the EU and Korea.
