Abstract

Green Criminology refers to criminological research and scholarship comprised of a number of distinct theoretical approaches that collectively deal with environmental and animal rights issues. As a whole, green criminology focuses on the nature and dynamics of environmental crimes and harms (that may incorporate wider definitions of crime than that provided in strictly legal definitions), environmental laws (including enforcement, prosecution, and sentencing practices), environmental regulation (systems of administrative, civil, and criminal law that are designed to manage, protect, and preserve specified environments and species, and to manage the negative consequences of particular industrial processes) and eco-justice (the valuing of and respect for humans, ecosystems, non-human animals, and plants).
