Emerging Issues in Green Criminology is an edited collection, examining the role of green criminology throughout the world and the social and criminological implications of environmental harm. “The book unifies transnational debates in environmental law, policy and justice, and in doing so examines international agreements and policy within diverse environmental discourses of sociology, criminology and political economy.”

Emerging Issues in Green Criminology: Exploring Power, Justice, and Harm contains contributions from over 10 members of the IGCWG, making it a truly collaborative effort of scholars studying environmental harm.

Michael J. Lynch, IGCWG Member, gives the book a strong endorsement:

“Emerging Issues in Green Criminology is an important collection of work that helps move the discussion of green criminology toward fuller recognition of the role power plays in the construction of green crime, their commissions, and the legal and nonlegal responses to those crimes and harms. The result is a work that will become the foundation for expanding the theoretical analysis of power within green criminology, and making power analysis central to green criminological analysis.”
- Michael J. Lynch, University of South Florida, USA
