This Research Handbook thoroughly examines the difficult and rapidly expanding problem of national, transnational, and international environmental crimes, including air and water pollution, unlawful mining and timber harvesting, and trafficking of endangered species. It provides an understanding of cutting-edge empirical and theoretical research on these crimes and their legal prosecution.

Pre-eminent experts in the field meticulously examine the relevant criminal law and environmental law and its enforcement in a range of regions across Africa, Asia, Europe and North and South America. They consider the significant obstacles to effective prosecution including government corruption, inadequate resources, and governance failures. Ultimately, the cross-disciplinary chapters build upon current research to present unique insights and raise important questions about the past, present and future of green criminology.

This timely Research Handbook is a crucial reference point for students and scholars of environmental law, criminology, and criminal justice. It also appeals to those interested in sustainability, environmental harms and crimes, and corporate behaviour.
