Manual of European Environmental Policy Wins Major European Information Award; Denver Law Professor Member of the Manual's Advisory Board

The Manual of European Environmental Policy, the preeminent publication about European Union environmental policy, has received the European Information Association's 2011 Award for European Information Services.

Previously published as a loose-leaf printed reference, the Manual was re-launched as an on-line service in 2010. It has been extensively restructured to reflect the changing nature and development of European environmental policy, which in many cases represents the leading edge of environmental policy development in the world.

The Manual is written by an interdisciplinary team of experts from the London and Brussels-based Institute for European Environmental Policy (IEEP), the leading center for the analysis and development of environmental and related policies in Europe.

Andrew Farmer, Director of Research and Head of the Industry, Waste, and Water Programme at IEEP and the Manual's editor, commented, "It is gratifying that the innovative features of the Manual were highlighted in the award."

Don Smith, director of the Environmental and Natural Resources Program at Denver Law, is a member of the Manual's Editorial Advisory Board. He said, "The Manual is the most systematic, reliable and comprehensive source of information on EU environmental policy. This is particularly important because in the eyes of many, the European Union is the most innovative and forward-looking governmental entity in terms of environmental policy."

Denver Law is one of the few law schools in North America that regularly offers a course in European Union Environmental Law & Policy.
