This chapter examines the extent to which the Israel Union for Environmental Defense (I.U.E.D.), an Israeli environmental law group created on the model of the U.S.A's Natural Resources Defense Council (N.R.D.C.), has succeeded in influencing Israeli government policy on environmental issues, despite substantial difference in respect of national political sensitivities and priorities. A review of the I.U.E.D's performance illustrates how it has had to counter local perceptions of being a “U.S. import”, by shifting attention away from its global links and toward its concerns with indigenous issues.

Keywords:   cause lawyers, environmental policy, Israel, I.U.E.D
