The study provides case studies of environmental injustice and a policy framework for improving environmental justice in Europe. Among the elements of the proposed policy is a recommendation that the European Union should amend directive implementing the Aarhus Convention to reflect environmental justice considerations. Specifically, it is recommended that directives should instruct competent authorities to make special provisions to reach out to minority groups and the poor in order to make environmental and health related information accessible to these groups and to encourage them to participate in decision-making processes on matters affecting their health and well-being.
