The paper deals with the political and economic determinants of EU agri-environmental measures (AEMs) applied by 59regional/country units, during the 2001-2004 period. Five different groups of determinants, spanning from positive and negative externalities,to political institutions, are highlighted and tested using an econometric model. Main results show that AEMs implementation is mostlyaffected by the strength of the farm lobby, and the demand for positive externalities. At the same time it emerges a prominent role played bypolitical institutions. On the contrary, AEMs do not seem implemented by the willingness to address negative externalities.
