Example text

12 The Convention has formally come into force but is still mainly useful as a guide to law reform in the transitional economies in the former Soviet Union and in Central and Eastern Europe. It has yet to have any significant impact on public access in Western Europe. We turn now to an analysis of the Convention’s three pillars. 1. Access to Information Despite the range of exemptions contained in the access-to-information pillar, the information and right-to-know provisions of the Convention seem extensive and comprehensive.

These give not only individuals, but also environmental organizations the ability to challenge substantive and procedural matters so long as they assert a sufficient interest or, under other legal systems, the impairment of a right. If judicial review of executive decisions is seen as mainly a way to protect individuals against an overbearing state, the notion of giving standing to organizations runs against the grain. 21 In a parliamentary system, the government would have no incentive to create such constraints on its own.

If judicial review of executive decisions is seen as mainly a way to protect individuals against an overbearing state, the notion of giving standing to organizations runs against the grain. 21 In a parliamentary system, the government would have no incentive to create such constraints on its own. A written constitution may build in some measure of judicial oversight, but politicians in power would not have such an interest and neither would professional bureaucrats. Organizations are only given standing if they have a “sufficient interest” or assert “impairment of a right”, but the Convention asserts that organizations fulfill these conditions if they claim to be promoting environmental protection.
