Along with the Green10, the EEB is writing to express concern at the direction that the discussions in the European Parliament on the revision of the Aarhus Regulation are taking. If there is not a change of course, there is a real risk that the revision process will fail to achieve its central purpose of ending the EU’s long-standing non-compliance with the Aarhus Convention, the UN’s flagship treaty on environmental democracy. This would not only perpetuate an accountability deficit at the heart of the EU; it would also be highly damaging to the EU’s credibility as a proponent of rule of law and could weaken efforts to promote democracy in the wider European region.
