Besides developing an economic viewpoint, this chapter also deals with the conventions which finally led to different standards and approaches in the Member States. The fundamental values of European policy include the transition to a Single European Market (SEM) on the one hand and the orientation of sustainable development on the other. This later objective, however, is interpreted in a rather different way. Tensions between national interests and common objectives, as well as interactions between national waste management regimes represent the main sources of conflict in European waste policy. The question thus arises as to where contradictions exist between the basic principles of national and supranational waste policies. The aim of the chapter is to characterise the opportunities and constraints required to smooth out or even avoid negative impact and benefit from positive dynamics between waste management regimes.
