The EIEL module organises a yearly series of webinars to complement teaching activities, engage with practitioners, and foster debate with European civil society.
Webinars are broadcasted live on EIEL’s YouTube channel and uploaded to the website for permanent use. The webinars’ outputs also provide the basis for further dissemination activities (e.g. blog posts, policy papers) undertaken by the teaching staff.
The topics of the webinars are calibrated according to the themes touched upon during the EIEL teaching course but also build upon them to analyse case studies and recent developments in the larger context of European and international environmental law. Invitees include environmental law researchers, policymakers and practitioners, relying upon the networks of the teaching staff as well as on the opportunities arising from our collaboration with partner organisations.

Marjan Peeters (Professor of Environmental Policy and Law, Maastricht University): Understanding EU Environmental Law in the Age of the European Green Deal
Marjan Peeters holds the position of Professor of Environmental Policy and Law since April 2008. Marjan started in 1987 with studying environmental law. Since then, she has been focusing on understanding how a high level of environmental protection can be effectively and efficiently reached based on the rule of law and in the context of sustainable development. Core research attention goes to legal aspects of climate change, regulatory instruments for emission reduction, and the way how law deals with uncertain risks. Marjan has co-edited more than 6 books in the field of EU environmental and climate law, and she has supervised – and is still supervising – several PhD projects.
Her latest books are Climate Change Law (2016), co-edited with Daniel A Farber, and the Research Handbook on EU environmental law (2020), co-edited with Mariolina Eliantonio.
