How to Handle Court Proceedings Invoking Non-Compliance with EU Nature Protection Law
This two-and-a-half day workshop will provide the participants with an overview of EU Nature law with a focus on species protection under the Habitats and Birds Directives. Moreover, emphasis will be given on the efforts aimed at eliminating illegal killing, taking and trade of wild birds according to the Bern Convention Recommendation No 177(2015). By addressing the issues that may be relevant for judges and prosecutors, it aims at facilitating the handling of future national court proceedings in this field.
