EU integration mechanisms affecting Hungarian public policies in waste management

The European Union’s integration activity and style of governance in relation to the public policy of member-states have undergone a strong learning process over the last 15 years. Legal means have been coupled with open methods of coordination, so that compulsory change is joined by incentives based on exchanging experience. With the spread of the European pattern of environmental protection, the EU has learnt much from earlier enlargements, adding to legal harmonization allocation of substantial resources to developing its capacity to enforce the acquis communautaire in acceding countries. Hungary’s waste-management policy has certainly undergone radical reforms in the last decade, in no small measure through adaptation to EU integration. The driving forces have been adaptation to EU legal patterns, enforcement institutions, financing frameworks and planning activity. These and the coming of a waste-management market have spread EU patterns to Hungary’s institutions and their networks.
