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. Green criminology offers a unique theoretical perspective on how human behavior causes and exacerbates environmental conditions that threaten the planet’s viability.
Paul Stretesky, along with Michael Lynch from University of South Florida’s Criminology Department, are editors for the international Journal, Green Criminology. The series is designed to promote scholarly examinations of environmental harms, crime, justice, law, regulation and policy to facilitate the further development of green criminology broadly defined. Dr. Stretesky and Dr. Lynch believe that the series provides a tremendous opportunity to expand research in green criminology and to build the scholarly basis and practical applications of this approach further. By bringing together a diverse body of research on all aspects of this subject, the series will make a significant contribution to our understanding of the dynamics between the natural world and the quite imperfect human world, and will set the stage for the future study in this growing area of concern.
They are currently accepting manuscripts for this series. To learn more, visit Ashgate Publishing.
