Call for proposals – Green Criminology series

We are currently seeking book proposals, particularly monographs, for our Green Criminology series, edited by Michael J. Lynch (University of South Florida) and Paul B. Stretesky (University of Northumbria).

This series makes a significant contribution to our understanding of the dynamics between the natural world and the quite imperfect human world, and sets the stage for the future study in this growing area of concern.

Now two decades old, green criminology – the study of environmental harm, crime, law, regulation, victimization, and justice – has increasing relevance to contemporary problems at local, national, and international levels. Societies and governments worldwide seek new ways to alleviate and deal with the consequences of various environmental harms as they relate to humans, non-human animals, plant species, and the ecosystem and its components.

Green criminology offers a unique theoretical perspective on how human behavior causes and exacerbates environmental conditions that threaten the planet’s viability. Volumes in the series consider such topics and controversies as corporate environmental crime, the complicity of international financial institutions, state-sponsored environmental destruction, and the role of non-governmental organizations in addressing environmental harms. Titles also examine the intersections between green criminology and other branches of criminology and other areas of law, such as human rights and national security. The series is international in scope, investigating environmental crime in specific countries as well as comparatively and globally.

For more information about the series, including submission guidelines, please send an email enquiry to Alison Kirk, Publishing Manager at akirk@ashgatepublishing.com.
