Résumé
The dissertation highlights the experiences in Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania in shifting from state-centered, hierarchical and prescriptive environmental laws toward collaborative environmental laws, which seek to enlist the capacities of multiple actors in governing particular environmental problems and issues. This process is viewed from the perspective of activities undertaken under the auspices of a UNEP-administered project, the Partnership for the Development of Environmental Laws in East Africa (PADELIA). By highlighting the processes and mechanisms used, the diverse sets of actors involved, and the impacts of their activities, the dissertation aims to highlight the potentials and limitations of collaborative approaches to environmental regulation, not just by individual African countries, but also where a regional approach has been adopted. The significance of laying bare this unique approach taken by the East African countries lies in highlighting the potentials of collaborative environmental governance for developing countries in Africa, as well as in identifying ways that particular tensions ironies and contradictions arising can lead to transformative outcomes that are both normatively desirable and practically realistic.
