Abstract

The following chapter by White addresses the theoretical silo mentioned in the introduction of this volume. White has been a central figure in the green criminological study of environment-related crimes and harms for two decades and is well-situated to provide an overview of the development of wildlife crime as a viable area of study within criminology. Focusing on three distinct orientations used to examine wildlife crime within the criminological literature-situational, contextual, and political economy-he provides an overview of the strengths and limitations of all three perspectives. In the penultimate' section, White discusses the potential benefit of incorporating these perspectives in developing holistic responses to address wildlife crime and outlines future avenues for collaborative research.
