This seminar explores the role of the criminal law in protecting the environment. Practical examples will be used to explore substantive, procedural and sentencing challenges created by domestic legislation. The seminar will then move on to explore the role of the European Union, raising in particular the constitutional issues raised by the important case decided last year, Commission of the European Communities v Council of the European Union (Case C-176/03), 13 September 2005, in which the European Court of Justice annulled Council Framework Decision 2003/80 on the protection of the environment through criminal law. The conclusion will emphasise the need for a principled and wide-ranging debate.

This talk is part of the Department of Geography - main Departmental seminar series series.
