Chapter Summary

This introductory chapter of the book deals about environment and trade. The book also discusses recycling, which obtains a prominent role in contemporary environmental policy. The chapter explains that how electronics recycling is a captivating example of modern environmental policy, and how recycling is well positioned for exploring the complicated relationship between environmental protection law and trade law. Recycling may be used to depict how trade and environment questions interweave interestingly with constitutional law. The impact that electronics have on the environment and on trade is vast. The analysis on recycling law as a point of contact between environmental protection and free movement of goods takes place against a practical case study on electronic waste. It is situated in the jurisdictional settings of the European Community and the United States, and is tightly interlinked with the constitutional aspects of both regulatory systems.

Keywords: constitutional law; electronics recycling; environmental protection law; European community; modern environmental policy; trade law; United States
