  • Environmental protection and European Union energy policy: Energy
           transition after the Paris Agreement
    • Authors: Patrick Thieffry
      Abstract: The European Union’s “Road to the Paris Agreement” did not include unilateral legislative instruments such as those it adopted before previous conferences pursuant to its exemplarity policy in climate negotiations. Rather, the Member States agreed in principle on new targets, some binding on both the European Union and Member States, such as those concerning greenhouse gas emissions from both emissions trading scheme and non-emissions trading scheme sectors, and others binding only on the European Union, concerning renewable energy and energy efficiency. In order to allow the European Union to meet its targets in the absence of corresponding national commitments, the Commission proposes an Energy Union Governance as a substitute for an obliterated energy policy which the Treaty does not allow to interfere with a Member State’s energy mix.

  • Strengthening mutual trust between European financial supervisors
    • Authors: Christopher P. Buttigieg
      Abstract: This paper posits the view that mutual trust between national financial supervisors in the EU is presently weak. This has an impact on the level of cooperation and coordination between these supervisors, resulting in barriers to cross-border business and failures in the supervision of cross-border financial group structures. The central argument of the paper is that these serious concerns may be addressed if mutual trust between national financial supervisors is strengthened through specific measures, such as: (i) broader and better initiatives for supervisory convergence, including convergence of the institutional models for national financial supervision, preferably by more direct involvement of central banks in micro-prudential and conduct supervision; and (ii) the setting up of a European Academy for Financial Supervisors.

  • State aid assessments in the aviation and ports sectors: The role for
           economic and financial analysis
    • Authors: Nicole Robins
      Abstract: State aid issues in the aviation and port sectors are growing, with an increasing number of high-profile cases. The introduction of the 2014 Aviation Guidelines has led to greater potential for sophisticated economic and financial analysis in state aid assessments. As this trend is mirrored in the ports sector, the evidence required to demonstrate compliance with the market economy operator principle or the compatibility of aid is now much greater. Given this backdrop, this article discusses a number of topical issues in state aid assessments in these sectors, illustrated by reference to key decisions from the European Commission.

  • The application of international environmental law principles in Latin
           America: a world apart from the EU?
    • Authors: Virgínia Torresan Sanfelice; Geert Van Calster; Leonie Reins
      Abstract: This paper presents a comparative discussion of the application of principles of international environmental law in the Latin American region and the European Union. The question we seek to answer is how (international) environmental principles are employed by Supreme Courts in Latin America, with a brief comparison with the approach by the European Court of Justice. This research presents an illustrative sample of Court of Justice cases and Supreme Court cases in Latin American countries to create an overview of different principles and approaches in practice. We construct a database and an illustrative sample of cases related to the environment since the Rio Declaration of 1992. This sample shows a wide range of principles of and approaches to environmental law in Latin America. Preliminary findings point to strong harmonization in the application of the principle of public participation and participation of indigenous groups in development projects. However, other principles, such as participation by women, are not widely disseminated or regularly deployed in arguments in court or in rulings. Others international environmental principles such as the precautionary principle, the polluter pays principle and the principle of sustainable development are also part of our analysis. This paper concludes that the application of environmental law principles in the regions needs to be integrated and strengthened.

  • Choice of law agreements in property regimes, divorce, and succession:
           stress-testing the new EU Regulations
    • Authors: Ilaria Viarengo
      Abstract: The aim of this article is to assess whether the party autonomy provided in the EU Regulations on family matters and on successions may overcome the uncertainties arising from the fragmentation of the EU family law. Currently, this legislation is spread over multiple Regulations that regulate different relationships, but are interconnected in a fragmentary manner. Unitary treatment of these relationships would be convenient. In practice all these matters are often addressed in the same proceedings. Therefore, there is the expectation that the same law will govern all of them.

  • Issuers’ duty to disclose inside information
    • Authors: Jesper Lau Hansen
      Abstract: Issuers are under an obligation to disclose inside information as soon as possible according to the disclosure regime in Art 17 of the Market Abuse Regulation (MAR). The article explores what and when an issuer must disclose. The threshold for determining what constitutes inside information is low, which ensures an early application of the insider dealing regime of MAR Art 8. The low threshold includes information of an intermediate nature, which is often uncertain and consequently likely to mislead the public if disclosed. However, the disclosure regime allows for delay to avoid this.

  • Equal members of the human family: disabled people’s right to a fair
           legal hearing
    • Authors: John Horan
      Abstract: UK barrister John Horan, who was disabled as the result of a stroke, uses the example of his own case to argue that discrimination on the grounds of disability in courts, tribunals and regulatory panels will only be stopped if judges and their peers take a realistic approach based on morality and humanity. He supports his argument with references to the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, the Equal Treatment Bench Book developed by the Judiciary of the UK and other sources. This is his personal view.

  • Transparency in EU law-making
    • Authors: Anaïs Berthier
      Abstract: EU Treaties, Regulation 1049/2001 and the CJEU’s case law require the highest standard of transparency for EU law-making. Yet, some pivotal stages of the legislative process remain completely opaque until the relevant decisions are adopted. This paper focuses on three different stages of this process, namely the adoption of the Commission’s impact assessment, of the European Parliament’s report by MEPs in the relevant committee within shadow meetings and the adoption of the final text of legislation within trilogue meetings. It concludes that opposing efficiency to transparency is a misguided approach.

  • Reinforcing EU testing methods of air emissions and the approval processes
           of vehicle compliance in the wake of the VW scandal
    • Authors: N. de Sadeleer
      Abstract: Air pollution poses the single largest environmental health risk in Europe today. In the wake of the VW scandal (Dieselgate), the regulatory techniques aiming at tackling air pollution in the frame of the EU type-approval procedure are subject to significant changes. The article provides an analysis of the current emission standards and the improvements flowing from recent European Commission Regulations aiming at improving control of the emissions.

  • How to stand up for clean air: a practitioner’s view on air quality
    • Authors: Matthias Keller
      Abstract: The right to an air quality plan is recognised by the Janecek judgement of the Court of Justice. However, if a claimant brings an action to a domestic court and argues for an injunction that would require the competent public entity to draw up an air quality plan, the national judge is confronted with various legal issues. General EU law questions may be raised which concern EU competence, legal bases, the Air Quality Directive, air quality plans, limit values of NOx and PM 10, individual rights, court remedies and the principle of effectiveness. Furthermore, domestic judges have to use traditional categories of admissibility (administrative act, standing and administrative silence) in the light of EU law. Deciding on the merits is a challenge as well. Here, the domestic judge has to take into account the discretion of the administration when issuing an order against public administration.

  • Terror won’t kill the privacy star – tackling terrorism propaganda
           online in a data protection compliant manner
    • Authors: Jan Ellermann
      Abstract: Reacting to a series of terrorist attacks, the European Union has tasked Europol to establish an Internet Referral Unit (EU IRU) to counter terrorist propaganda. The political statement entailed a clear commitment to fundamental rights including data protection. This paper analyses the present and future applicable legal bases and elaborates on challenges connected to the practical implementation of the EU IRU. It also explains why Europol is often referred to as “the most controlled police agency in the world”. The paper concludes that it is possible to tackle terrorism propaganda online in a data protection compliant manner.

  • The role of the Industrial Emissions Directive in the European Union and
    • Authors: Peter Vajda
      Abstract: The fifth anniversary of the adoption of the Industrial Emissions Directive came in December 2015. Consolidating seven previously existing pieces of the environmental acquis, the Industrial Emissions Directive became the command-and-control type cornerstone of EU policy on industrial activities. At the time of its adoption, it marked an important step towards a flexible and coherent legislative framework for industries that emit into air, water and soil. In the past five years, the Industrial Emissions Directive’s provisions for large combustion plants have become applicable outside the EU as well via their gradual incorporation into the environmental acquis of the Energy Community Treaty.

  • The confiscation and recovery of criminal property: a European Union state
           of the art
    • Authors: Michaël Fernandez-Bertier
      Abstract: Since the late twentieth century, new criminal policies have emerged which have substantially restructured the global effort to fight crime. These anti-crime strategies eschew traditional approaches to fighting illicit behaviours in favour of a new paradigmatic shift towards the asset recovery strategy. The newly established mechanisms aim at tackling the criminals where it hurts the most, i.e. their property, with a view to ensuring that crime does not pay. This contribution succinctly analyses the birth and evolution of modern confiscation mechanisms, the prevailing models for efficient recovery of criminal property, and the European Union state of the art on the matter.

  • Fighting cybercrime between legal challenges and practical difficulties:
           EU and national approaches
    • Authors: Laviero Buono
      Abstract: As the use of the internet and other computer networks has grown exponentially in recent years, so has the opportunity for online unlawful activities. Criminals can trade and share information masking their identity, identify their victims and communicate with co-conspirators online. This article will look at the latest EU initiatives (legal instruments and policy developments) which have been launched to fight cybercrime during the past two-three years, and at the first main findings of the national reports on the seventh round of mutual evaluations carried out by the Council of the European Union. On that basis, some conclusions will be drawn.

  • The relevance of the Mandela Rules in Europe
    • Authors: Andrea Huber
      Abstract: On 17 December 2015, the UN General Assembly adopted, unanimously, the revised Standard Minimum Rules for the Treatment of Prisoners, completing a four-year process of review and deciding that they should become known as the Nelson Mandela Rules. This article provides an illustration of the standards provided by the Nelson Mandela Rules in comparison to the European Prison Rules, demonstrating the added value of the Mandela Rules for guidance on prisoner file management, healthcare, disciplinary sanctions and restrictions, solitary confinement as well as inspection and monitoring. At the same time, the European Prison Rules remain more detailed and progressive in areas such as classification, sentence planning, rehabilitation programmes and preparation for release. In light of the new developments, an update to the 2006 European Prison Rules or at least its commentary seems advisable, including to address the lack of gender-sensitivity and the overdue removal of the term “mental disorder or abnormality”. Meanwhile practitioners will need to familiarise themselves with the Nelson Mandela Rules and apply the “superior” standard in each case.

      Abstract: The adoption of cloud services has been driven in part by the continuing and increasing use of mobile devices. Recently, privacy and security of data stored on these devices has been in the forefront of the public debate. In the last year, concerns have been raised by the European Union on the privacy implications of cloud data and cross border data transfers culminating in the Schrems ruling and a new EU-US data transfer agreement. At the same time, developers of mobile devices and clouds have taken more care with the privacy of their user’s data and have begun to encrypt the data the devices store. In criminal cases, the success of an investigation hinges on the ability of the forensic investigator to access the evidence stored in both of the mobile device and the cloud. This article will discuss how the mobile devices and clouds are investigated in digital forensics and what effects the new privacy developments have had on the field. The article provides context by illustrating how data on the smartphone and cloud is investigated, and the challenges brought on by the privacy rulings.
