New forest laws have been adopted in Eastern European countries as part of their transition to a market economy with considerable effect on the structure of forest land ownership, improvements in management regulations and modernization of the forest sector’s institutional framework. New forest legislation has also been developed in several countries in Western Europe in order to adapt its content to changing economic conditions, new social demands and more political participation of interest groups and citizens at local and regional levels. The selection of 35 reviewed papers submitted to the Research Group on Forest Law and Environmental Legislation of the International Union of Forestry Research Organisations (IUFRO) provides an overview of the dynamic and multifaceted development in sustainable forest management and documents recent changes in forest laws of 25 European countries. The text collection is an important source of information on forest law development in the European region and a comprehensive reference for comparative analysis.
