The ‘Polluter Pays Principle’: environmental liabilities and scientific evidence under the Italian law system

Abstract

The “Polluter Pays” Principle is a cornerstone in environmental law. The Italian law system, like other European ones, show that this principle, although being easy to understand, is hard to be implemented. Case law and experience confirm that a multidisciplinary approach, combining legal competences and technical expertise, is required to make this principle effective, especially when contamination dates to a distant past.

PlumX Metrics provide insights into the ways people interact with individual pieces of research output (articles, conference proceedings, book chapters, and many more) in the online environment. Examples include, when research is mentioned in the news or is tweeted about. Collectively known as PlumX Metrics, these metrics are divided into five categories to help make sense of the huge amounts of data involved and to enable analysis by comparing like with like.
