As a consequence of EU enlargement, Central and Eastern European countries have become part of a regional integration regime characterized by a substantial supranational regulatory structure and significant density of transnational networks involving problem-solving, monitoring, coordination, and capacity building across public and private domains. This chapter focuses on transnational networks as an important dimension of the strategy of European regulative integration, and inquires to what extent and through what mechanisms such networks may impact the effectiveness of environmental regulatory integration in the new EU member states. It specifies the sources of network influence and the mechanisms through which they impact domestic institution building in support of environmental regulatory integration. The impact of transnational environmental networks is assessed empirically in two recent member states of the EU, Romania and Bulgaria, with respect to their adaptation to two domains of EU environmental regulation: biodiversity conservation and chemicals safety.

Keywords:   EU environmental policy, regulatory integration, transnational environmental networks, chemicals safety, biodiversity protection, Central and Eastern Europe
