This thesis brings together a selected sample of my sole-authored legal research publications completed between 2008-2016 and published during the period whilst I held the position of Senior Lecturer in Law at Kent Law School, in the University of Kent (UK). The published works focus on a common subject area: the evolving provisions, principles and institutional structures underpinning the legal framework of the European Union (EU) relevant to the enforcement of EU environmental law. Much of the original inspiration and motivation to undertake research in this legal area may be traced back to my experience working as an official (legal administrator) within the European Commission's Environment Directorate-General of the EU between 2001-2003, during which time I engaged in a range of duties connected directly or indirectly with law and policy concerning the enforcement of EU environmental legislation. The principal aim of this thesis is to provide an overview of the legal analysis and appraisal undertaken by my selected published works on EU law concerning the enforcement of EU environmental protection legislation, drawing out their key findings and ideas and identifying how they complement one another as a collective body of research. The selection of published works chosen for this thesis includes a total of seven pieces, specifically six journal articles and one monograph. This research aims to contribute to a better and more complete understanding of the scope, contents and impact of the EU's legal framework relevant to the enforcement of EU environmental law, whilst also providing critical appraisal and insights into possibilities for enhancing its effectiveness.
