Abstract

Whilst the European Union (EU) does not compare easily with any other political/legal entity, including the Australian federation, both are concerned with the designation of powers and responsibilities to appropriate political institutions at various levels. In both the EU and Australia, environmental law can potentially be generated at two levels at least: national and supra-national, or State and Commonwealth, respectively. Wilst the legislative competence of the EU and the Commonwealth, with respect to certain defined environmental matters, has been confirmed beyond doubt, debate is still focussed on the desirability or otherwise of an expansion of environmental competence for the central authority.
