Green Criminology has the potential to provide not only a different way of examining and making sense of various forms of crime and control responses, but can also make explicable much wider connections which are not generally well understood. As all societies face up to the need to confront harms against the environment, other animals and humanity, criminology will have a major role to play. This book is an essential part of this process.
This edited collection brings together internationally renowned scholars to explore green criminology through the interdisciplinary lenses of power, justice and harm. The chapters provide innovative case study analyses from North America, Europe and Australia that seek to advance theoretical, policy and practice discourses about environmental harm. The book unifies transnational debates in environmental law, policy and justice, and in doing so examines international agreements and policy within diverse environmental discourses of sociology, criminology and political economy.
Emerging Issues in Green Criminology is an essential source for students, scholars and policy makers in this rapidly growing area of criminology, as well as environmental studies more broadly.
