Published on Wednesday, October 29, 2014


Today, the protection of the environment has become a global challenge. Even if international law plays a keyrole in that field, monitoring the different national environmental laws systems turns to be essential in order to assess the efficiency of those frameworks and their ability to be exported. In this regard, Aix-Marseille University is holding the « Environmental comparative law week » from 24 to 28 november 2014. This event is organized by the CERIC (Center for International and European and Studies and Research) and its environmental comparative law pole, and is also supported by the AMIDEX label awarded to the Master of International and European Environmental Law. It will lead to a series of conferences whereseveral national specialists in environmental law will analyze an original environmental principle existing within their national regimes. Themes to be adressed in both French and English are: the compensation of ecological damage, the precautionaryprinciple and its consequences in civil liability law, the industrial environmental law, thesources and principles of environmental law and the prevention of damage in the environmental field.
