EFFACE policy briefs on environmental crime
5 November 2014
The project “European Union Action to Fight Environmental Crime” (EFFACE) has published its first two Policy Briefs on environmental crime. The Briefs provide examples and insights on the need for a coordinated EU approach to reduce the broad impacts of crimes against the environment.
Policy Brief 1, Limitations and challenges of the criminal justice system in addressing environmental crime, examines how environmental crime is a growing challenge for the EU and the criminal justice systems of its Member States. Policy Brief 2, Organised Environmental Crime: The need for combating environmental crime as a serious and organised category of offense, calls for greater EU priority in combating environmental crime as a growing threat to human health and good governance.
