The rapid and constant degradation of environmental goods, due to the inefficacy of ex ante measures to prevent environmental damage, has given an increasing role to ex post measures, such as liability regarding environmental damage.
The present analysis discusses the instruments available once environmental harm has been caused. This research aims at clarifying the role of ex post measures within environmental law, that is to say, measures taken after the damage occurs. This includes studying their scope, and determining how these measures can help to overcome the challenges faced by day-to-day problems in environmental law.
Cases involving environmental damage happen to be particularly complex due to great technical difficulties that, sometimes, cannot be overcome. The research finds a number of examples where the strength of ex post measures has been raised, providing more efficient remedies to environmental damage and its victims. Such comparison is essentially focus on the solutions contained within the European legal framework, even if not perfect, shows an interesting example of progress in the field of environmental damage, which involves working collaboratively and sharing sovereign powers.
Key words: environmental protection, environmental damage, liability, ex post measures, compensation, ex ante measures.
