Abstract

Critical criminologists have come to recognize the major impact that environmental crime has on society, and have begun to consider what role the concept of harm should play in its analysis. A broadened field of criminology has especially engendered changes in the way environmental crimes are perceived and the victims that are considered to be produced through environmental crime. In this volume, leading international scholars analyze the injustices produced by the powers that drive harmful practices, such as capitalism and consumerism. They adopt a number of perspectives that importantly encapsulate both human and non-human animal rights, including: speciesism, environmental (in)justice, species (in)justice and ecological (in)justice. Green Harms and Crimes celebrates the 40th anniversary of the European Group for the Study of Deviance and Social Control and particularly pays tribute to the theoretical roots of critical criminology, as well as its developments, alongside empirical contributions in this field. The contributors address pressing topics encompassing: victimization, waste and corporate crimes, agribusiness and food crimes, biomedical research, illegal wildlife trafficking, and political protest and oppression.
