Miljøstrafferet og retspolitik i de nordiske lande
15-20 years ago the outcome of Nordic research in the field of Environmental Criminal Law was publiched. To mention two are for example Forurensning og straff – et nordisk studium from 1991, (Nord 1991:2) and Umweltstrafrecht in den nordischen Ländern, which was conducted by the Max-Planck Institute in Freiburg, Germany. Since then the discussion about the protection of the environment with legislation has been very limited within the Nordic venue. The aim of this research is to carry on this project from where it was left and study how the criminal protection of the environment is in the Nordic countries.
