Applying EU Environmental Legislation in the Field of Marine Protection

19 May 2003 to 20 May 2003
What are the impacts of European infringement procedures regarding the non-compliance with nature conservation legislation? To what extent are infringement procedures capable of enforcing the implementation of this legislation?
