CY3890 - Green Criminology
|Student Contribution Band:
||School of Arts and Social Sciences (pre 2015)
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.
- develop a critical understanding relating to crimes against the environment;
- develop a critical perspective about the limitations and potential for international
justice and transnational agreements for regulating policing and protecting the environment;
- develop an appreciation of the roles of government and non- government in investigating
and prosecuting crimes against the environment;
- gain an awareness about international and Australian case studies pertaining to the
environment and the law.
