Huge congratulations to ERC researcher and PhD candidate Julie Foulon who has published an article in the prestigious Environmental Law Review journal.
Julie’s article analyzes the innovations and challenges of the recent provision to address ecological damage three years after its introduction into French civil law. The paper explains how the new regime proceeds to remedy ecological damage, as well as its key challenge – namely, that nature does not have a legal personality under the French legal system. This hurdle has traditionally prevented compensation for environmental loss being secured under tort law.
