Explores the nature of environmental crime and its social regulation. The unit has three main topical concerns. First, to investigate the nature of environmental crime from the point of view of legal, ecological and justice perspectives, with an emphasis on how environmental harm is socially constructed. Second, to investigate the nature of regulatory mechanisms and the social control of environmental crime, by considering issues surrounding law enforcement practices, compliance mechanisms, prosecution, and crime prevention as these pertain to the environment. Third, to investigate the nature of the relationship between changes to specific environments and the criminalisation process, with particular reference to the causes and contexts of environmental crime, the social processes that underpin environmental victimisation, and how the law is mobilised in relation to conflicts over environmental issues. The unit provides an overview of contemporary developments in green criminology, and in doing so offers a theoretical understanding of key concepts and debates pertaining to environmental crime, and exposure to concrete case studies relating to the regulation of environmental harm.
