ERCS Invitation to tender: Scoping a domestic legal framework for ecocide

Ecocide law is intended to create an enforceable deterrent to the most severe and either widespread or long-term environmental damage.

On 8 November Monica Lennon, MSP will launch the public consultation on her proposed Member’s Bill to introduce ecocide law in Scotland. This comes at a time when the European Union are considering the inclusion of ecocide level crimes in the revised Directive on protection of the environment through criminal law.

ERCS is commissioning a research report to scope the feasibility and options for incorporating ecocide into Scots law.

Deadline: 30 November 2023
