This subject focuses on an area of increasing importance in critical criminology, crimes against the environment. Green criminology requires that we pay close attention to environmental and ecological justice, to corporate views on environmental regulations and to corporate ideas of what constitute green crimes. With reference to local and international case studies, students examine procedures of reporting, investigating and prosecuting and the problems associated with them, and the roles played by government and nongovernment organisations. Graduates should have gained a critical perspective on the potential and the limitations of international justice and transnational agreements regarding the protection, regulation and policing of the environment.
