It is clear that there are considerable differences among member states in the EU with regard to the position they take on environmental policy, and the strategies they have developed, or failed to develop, in order to deal with problems of pollution. It is primarily because of the variation that the selection of countries has been chosen, in order to test the possibilities of, and the problems associated with, European integration in this field. The six countries that have been examined in detail span different levels of economic development, have been members of the EU for varying lengths of time, and frequently maintain different stances on environmental policy in forums like the Council of Ministers. The EU had undoubtedly had significant effects in the environmental area.
