    Abstract

    The present work seeks to analyse the reasons behind the creation of a new instrument by the European Commission in order to improve the implementation of the European Union (EU) environmental law: the Environmental Implementation Review (EIR). To do so, it builds upon existing theoretical frameworks developed in the analysis of policy implementation, public policy instruments and public policy change. The analysis of the empirical evidence leads to conclude the significance of organisational factors-the Better Regulation reform program and the new Commission's executive. The design of the EIR itself seems to have been influenced by both the instrument mix already used in the environmental field and instruments developed in other policy fields. The role played by external actors remains difficult to assess, though it can't be defined that they contributed to reinforce the saliency of the implementation issue at the EU level.
