Prosecuting Environmental and Serious Economic Crimes as International Crimes Advanced Issues in the EU Criminal Law and Policy

Published 7 months, 3 weeks ago (updated 5 months, 3 weeks ago)

Due to the Covid-19 outbreak this event is postponed to November.

Key topics

Serious environmental and economic crimes and violations of economic, social and cultural rights have often been neglected in criminal proceedings and reports of truth commissions that have followed in the wake of economic transitions or conflicts. Recommendations 46-47 from the Oslo Outcome Statement on Corruption involving Vast Quantities of Assets (June 14, 2019) are calling upon experts to conduct analysis and explore ideas that contribute on how to successfully address, with respect the sovereignty of States, some of the mentioned issues. For example, the establishment of an international special rapporteur for anti-corruption, the development of a protocol to UNCAC on corruption involving VQA, exploring the possibility of extending the jurisdiction of the International Criminal Court to include corruption involving VQA, creating international commissions against corruption and impunity etc. The similar is applicable to environmental crimes.
