Great Achievements and Great Challenges: The EU Common Fisheries Policy
- 91 Downloads
The common European approach to fisheries is an important case study that illustrates the ability of members to work together to achieve agreement in the face of diverse socio-economic interests alongside significant environmental issues. For these reasons the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP) is a key case study that illustrates the challenges and successes of European integration. There are few other examples of where ownership of resources is less clear and therefore careful negotiation required. This is combined with the politically sensitive nature of the fishing industry, typified by small, poor communities. In this sense the CFP is a success to the extent that it has been possible to reach any sort of agreement and meet some of its aims.
