We are the European expert on studying the prosecution and sanctioning of environmental crime in Europe

Law enforcement is the cornerstone of any policy. Legislation that does not contain effective enforcement provisions remains a dead letter. The limited knowledge of administrative sanctions schemes contrasts sharply with their policy relevance. Unlike criminal sanctions, most of which are primarily aimed at punishment, many administrative sanctions primarily aim to undo the infringement. We offer a substantiated answer to questions that concern the core of the subject, such as: What administrative sanctions exist in our environmental law? What is their law enforcement potential? What about the sanctioning practice?
