About the Book

Green Criminology provides for an interdisciplinary study of environmental crimes. The term first appeared about three decades ago, due to an increase in the frequency of crimes related to the environment having a disastrous impact on the environment, and the enormous costs that these crimes entail for future generations. The study of green criminology is centred around exploring the relationship between the environment, crime, and justice. This book is thus an attempt to describe the nature and implication of green crimes, analyse the relationship between law and ecological justice, and study the contribution of international law in this area and the various strategies adopted by different countries to prevent or mitigate the harms caused by green crimes. The book also tries to determine the extent to which present laws and policies have successfully addressed the issue.
