    This paper will attempt to provide another case analysis of the constellation of factors in providing impetus for innovation in the area of environmental policy at the EU/EC level. The paper will focus mainly on the evolution of policy instruments in the "problem space" (Kingdon 1984) of increasing levels of waste generation and the potential trade distortions of national level efforts to stem this problem. The evolution of ‘policy beliefs’ regarding environmental policy directions in an era of increasing globalization--both in an economic sense and in terms of awareness regarding the global impact of environmental degradation--will be explored via an examination of the "policy content" of both past and current legislative efforts in the area of waste management.
