SEVeso investigates on the rights of victims of environmental disasters, caused by industrial development by focusing on emblematic national cases in a comparative fashion. The project answers the following fundamental research question: which are the main socio-juridical and informational tools, support services and key actors supporting eco-victims’ access to justice and compensation, and how these tools can be improved? On the basis of this, the project has a twofold nature. First, an analytical one that has the objective of investigating eco-victims’ access to information (legal and health related), to justice and compensation and the role of support services and actors as associations and lawyers. Second, a more practical nature that has the aim of proposing solutions for improving eco-victims’ access to information and justice as amendments to legislation, the implementation of tools for information diffusion (online website dedicated to eco-victims) or tools for victims’ involvement and victims/offender facilitation as restorative justice procedures. In order to pursue the mentioned objectives, three milestones will be attained. First, a socio-legal and organizational analysis involving the following activities: a) a socio-legal analysis of international, EU and national norms regarding environmental harm and eco-victims’ rights with a specific focus on the application in practice of the legislation and the role of main actors; b) study of best (and worst) practices in terms of support services for eco-victims through emblematic case-studies (ex-ILVA, Taranto; Priolo; Mantua Lakes); c) the draft of a white paper including sustainable and transferable models of services to assist eco-victims and proposals of national legislation amendments. Second, an online support stage involving: a) the implementation of a one-stop shop website for eco-victims; b) the implementation of an online legal atlas including legal information for eco-victims in an accessible language; c) the implementation of an epidemiological risk atlas including accessible information on pollution-related health risks; d) a data-gathering system that allows citizens (victims or victims’ relatives) to file anonymized information on judicial procedures or pollution-related health issues. Third, a restorative justice (RJ) stage involving the following activities: a) a methodological study of RJ for environmental crimes combining restorative justice and participative democracy methods; b) the organization of RJ processes in the three case studies involving victims, entrepreneurs, workers and other stakeholders; c) the draft of guidelines for environmental crime's RJ as a result of the experience acquired during the processes implemented. The results of the project will be also disseminated through a communication strategy including media activities, several publications (book, articles), participation in national and international conferences and a final SEVeso conference.

Abstract

SEVeso investigates on the rights of victims of environmental disasters, caused by industrial development by focusing on emblematic national cases in a comparative fashion. The project answers the following fundamental research question: which are the main socio-juridical and informational tools, support services and key actors supporting eco-victims’ access to justice and compensation, and how these tools can be improved? On the basis of this, the project has a twofold nature. First, an analytical one that has the objective of investigating eco-victims’ access to information (legal and health related), to justice and compensation and the role of support services and actors as associations and lawyers. Second, a more practical nature that has the aim of proposing solutions for improving eco-victims’ access to information and justice as amendments to legislation, the implementation of tools for information diffusion (online website dedicated to eco-victims) or tools for victims’ involvement and victims/offender facilitation as restorative justice procedures. In order to pursue the mentioned objectives, three milestones will be attained. First, a socio-legal and organizational analysis involving the following activities: a) a socio-legal analysis of international, EU and national norms regarding environmental harm and eco-victims’ rights with a specific focus on the application in practice of the legislation and the role of main actors; b) study of best (and worst) practices in terms of support services for eco-victims through emblematic case-studies (ex-ILVA, Taranto; Priolo; Mantua Lakes); c) the draft of a white paper including sustainable and transferable models of services to assist eco-victims and proposals of national legislation amendments. Second, an online support stage involving: a) the implementation of a one-stop shop website for eco-victims; b) the implementation of an online legal atlas including legal information for eco-victims in an accessible language; c) the implementation of an epidemiological risk atlas including accessible information on pollution-related health risks; d) a data-gathering system that allows citizens (victims or victims’ relatives) to file anonymized information on judicial procedures or pollution-related health issues. Third, a restorative justice (RJ) stage involving the following activities: a) a methodological study of RJ for environmental crimes combining restorative justice and participative democracy methods; b) the organization of RJ processes in the three case studies involving victims, entrepreneurs, workers and other stakeholders; c) the draft of guidelines for environmental crime's RJ as a result of the experience acquired during the processes implemented. The results of the project will be also disseminated through a communication strategy including media activities, several publications (book, articles), participation in national and international conferences and a final SEVeso conference.
