Oxford University Press

This chapter begins by describing the main purposes and procedures of environmental impact assessment (EIA). The second section plots the legal staging-posts in the extension of the EIA concept to the transboundary context. The third section examines key aspects of the operation of two significant legal instruments on EIA, both anchored in Europe. The final section considers the place of EIA in the overall conceptual structure of international environment law and its interface with issues of damage, liability, and responsibility to general international law. The chapter concludes with an assessment of the future of EIA.
