- The project (2007-2011) aims at interdisciplinary research (law, economics, law & economics) of the penalization of environmental crimes in the penal and the administrative track. It focusses on a description, analysis and assesment of the use that practice makes of the discretionary realm that is inherent to the application of a lot of penalization instruments.
