About this book

In an effort to implement the aims of sustainable development, new views of the traditional liability instrument have to be applied. Environmental Damage and Liability Problems in a Multilevel Context focuses on the Environmental Liability Directive 2004/35/EC (the so-called ELD ) on the prevention and remedying of environmental damage, and evaluates as to whether the ELD has achieved its goals and maintained its ambitions in terms of environmental protection, and what the optimal level of harmonization in terms of environmental protection is.

In order to address the question of research of Environmental Damage and Liability Problems in a Multilevel Context, an interdisciplinary framework of analysis and methodology combining political science and law are developed. Since environmental damage is a multidimensional and multidisciplinary problem, par excellence, a multidisciplinary approach is required. Consequently, the use of a multidisciplinary method, combining together in a systematic and rigorous fashion, law, political science, technical elements of economy, insurance law and natural science, is, in the research design of this study, necessary, in a view of tackling the topic in a scientific problem solving-oriented approach. Environmental Damage and Liability Problems in a Multilevel Context draws the overall conclusions by suggesting proposals for amendments and recommendations to be utilized for possible redrafting of the ELD s provisions for the time when the ELD will be object of a procedure of revision.
