European Law Institute Project

The prestigious European Law Institute has embarked on a project for the drafting of a model ecocide law in the EU context. The ELI’s work will evolve in relation to the international definition being developed by the Independent Expert Panel for the Legal Definition of Ecocide convened by the Stop Ecocide Foundation. This is a hugely welcome development and underlines the weight and urgency of legislating for serious damage and destruction of nature.
