Study day “Nitrogen crisis in the Low Countries”


The Center for Environmental and Energy Law (Prof. Schoukens, Prof. Cliquet, Prof. Van Hoorick), together with the Utrecht Center for Water, Oceans and Sustainability Law (UCWOSL) of Utrecht University, is organized a conferences on 15 June 2022 on the “ Nitrogen crisis in the Low Countries” in collaboration with publisher die Keure.

In doing so, we examined to what extent the new Dutch and Flemish nitrogen rules and recent developments in case law provide a sustainable solution to the nitrogen crisis. We are investigating where we can learn from each other, both in terms of do's and don'ts. The comparative law perspective is central here, while more systemic issues are also not shunned.
