Following the EFFACE project, a second edited volume focused on legal matters, titled, Environmental Crime in Europe and was published by Hart Publishing in the series Modern Studies in European Law.
The aim of this important new collection is to explore how environmental crime is controlled and environmental criminal law is shaped and implemented within the European Union and its Member States. It examines the legal framework, looking in particular at Directive 2008/99/EC, and the specific competences of the EU in this domain. In addition, it provides a detailed analysis of environmental criminal law in seven Member States focusing inter alia on the basic legislation, the way in which environmental pollution is criminalised and the main actors in place to enforce environmental criminal law. In so doing, it provides a much needed explanation of the evolution of environmental criminal law in Europe at Union level and how this is implemented in specific selected Member States.
Environmental Crime in Europe is available for purchase.
