Abstract: Environmental effects of reactive nitrogen are a result of intense anthropogenic activities (Hogrefe, this issue). They are evident in different parts of the world. Proper treatment is, inter alia, a scale issue. With individual countries in most of Europe too small for comprehensive coverage of all effects, regulation of pollution in Europe co-emerged with political integration in general. In this paper, we describe the most important frameworks of international regulation in Europe. We also discuss the interaction of such institutional setting with the scientific initiatives at the same level, and finally assess how scientific results have been fed with some success into strategies to mitigate pollution levels.
