    Abstract

    Much interest has been given to the involvement of civil society in EU policy-making, especially over the last decade, as a mean to counter the so called „crisis of politics‟. This paper examines the role of environmental non-governmental organisations (ENGO) in the policy process leading to the adoption of the amending emissions trading system directive (ETS-directive), adopted in December 2008 in trialogue and formally in April 2009 by the Council of Ministers. The aim of this study has been to assess the influence of the ENGOs in the particular case of the ETS-directive. It examines enabling and constraining factors, more specifically the channels used by the ENGOs in achieving their aims as well as the significance of representativeness for ENGOs in EU interest representation. The topic of this paper fits into the wider question of whether external actors actually have a real impact on the final policy outcome in the EU policymaking or if the involvement of civil society remains a procedural issue.
