Message from the Associate Editor of RECIEL (Review of European Community and International Environmental Law): BOOKS FOR REVIEW

Dear Colleague,

My warmest wishes for the New Year!

I am writing to you in my Review of European Community and International Environmental Law (RECIEL) Associate Editor (Book Review Editor) capacity. I am sending you this e mail because I believe that due to your expertise in environmental law you may be interested in reviewing a book for RECIEL (or because you have contributed to RECIEL with a book review in the past). Book reviews range anywhere between 500 and 1500 words, but we do accept longer book reviews on occasions. Book reviews must follow the RECIEL style guidelines that can be found at  Furthermore, book reviews (as articles and case notes) will now be submitted on-line at

This is a list of books that we currently have available for review. I attach also a document that provides you with more information about each book. If you are interested in reviewing any of them, or if you know of any other book that you deem RECIEL should consider for its possible revision – or that you would like to review yourself -, please let me know and I will be happy to liaise with you about this. The deadline for book reviews to be published in the next RECIEL issue is 01/04/2013, but in the attached document you will find submission deadlines also for the next three RECIEL issues. Please feel free to let me know if you can make it for the first deadline, or whether you would need any additional time.
