about this item

Criminal law takes up a key position as an enforcement mechanism enabling the targeting of acts harming the environment. However, many issues remain due to the lack of coherent international approach to norms, standards and control mechanisms; different forms of liability of states and corporations and challenges in investigating and prosecuting crimes against the environment. This volume contributes to the exchange of perspectives on environmental criminal law and the analysis of obstacles to efficient investigation and prosecution. It consists of three parts. The first focuses on the nature and extent of the problem. The second is devoted to the assessment of regional enforcement systems. The third addresses the challenges in investigating and prosecuting environmental crime. Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. José Luis de la Cuesta is director of the Basque Institute of Criminology (IVAC-KREI) and honorary president of the International Association of Penal Law (AIDP-IAPL).
