These proceedings discuss the crucial issue of how to protect the environment. The papers examine whether criminal law is the most appropriate instrument or whether there are more flexible cost efficient means for curbing environmental degradation. Information based strategies, environmental audits and third party enforcement strategies are suggested as additional mechanisms of environmental regulation.
