Law, Environment and the EU – the Enforcement Challenge
The Faculty of Law is hosting a major conference on Friday, 29 November 2013 on Enforcing European Union Environmental Law.
Contributors include: Liam Cashman, Directorate General Environment, European Commission; Andrew Jackson, Natural Environment Officer & In-house Counsel An Taisce; Tom Flynn BL; and Margaret Gray BL. Judge Anthony M Collins of the General Court of the European Union is the conference Chair. Almost 200 participants are expected, including legal practitioners, Government officials, regulators, public authorities, environmental and planning consultants, NGOs, academics, students and members of the public.
Organised by Dr Áine Ryall, the conference examines contemporary challenges in EU environmental law enforcement and provides a public forum for informed debate. At a more general level, it seeks to provide accurate, up to date information for participants on issues relating to enforcement, including the impact of the Aarhus Convention in practice.
The conference is supported by funding from the Department of Environment, Community and Local Government and from the Department of An Taoiseach Communicating Europe Initiative.
There is no charge to attend, but advance registration is essential due to high demand for places.
