SOTO BARRIENTOS, FRANCISCO  and  COSTA CORDELLA, EZIO. Challenges and tensions of public participation in environmental matters. Rev. Derecho Estado [online]. 2019, n.44, pp.227-255. ISSN 0122-9893.

This paper is a reflection over the singularities of public participation in environmental issues. The way in which the law deals with it in practice shows differences between public participation in this area, and public participation in general, that could imply a theoretical difference. Moreover, this difference can also be studied from the variables that justify public participation in environmental matters, such as risk management, environmental justice, deliberation and access to justice. Because of these differences, this article believes that public participation in environmental issues should be treated different from a theoretical point of view, integrating disciplines such as political science, sociology and law, to understand and regulate accurately the subject.

Keywords : Public Participation; Environmental Law; Public Management.
