EFFACE will produce a considerable number of research reports, contributions to academic journals and policy briefs. They will be made available here. Come back later to learn more about our research!

Study on wildlife crime in the EU published by EFFACE researchers

In the context of the preparation of the EU Action Plan against Wildlife Trafficking, the European Parliament comissioned a study to analyse wildlife crime in the EU and the enforcement situation in Member States. The study, completed in February 2016, was compiled by a consortium led by Ecologic Institute and comprising several other EFFACE partners.

Involving Stakeholders in Environmental Crime Policy Research

This report provides an account of how stakeholders are involved in an "Interactive Policy Analysis" to generate input, feedback and mutual learning with and among stakeholders. This effort is directly linked to the project's action on "Stakeholder Involvement and Dissemination", which aims to draw on relevant expert and stakeholder knowledge and insights as a way of informing research activities and road testing results.

Environmental Crime Case Studies

Within the project, EFFACE partners have compiled 12 case studies on different types of environmental crime. The purpose of conducting these case studies is to identify the mechanisms and impacts of different types of environmental crime within and outside of the EU and possible counter-measures. The case studies also contain contains conclusions and recommendations on how to improve the EU's policy framework and EU political action to better combat environmetnal crime.
