Series Palgrave Studies in Green Criminology

Bringing together a range of international academics and practitioners in the field, this book examines the role and practical dynamics of governmental environmental law enforcement agencies and individuals who are engaged in activities aimed to combat environmental crime. Key players include organisations such as CITES, the International Network for Environmental Compliance and Enforcement, INTERPOL, UNICRI, US EPA, the World Customs Organization, and state-based environmental protection agencies. Responding to environmental crime involves a wide range of horizontal, vertical and diagonal collaborations, across many different domains and sectors. This collection provides detailed description and analysis of the how and why of collaborative state intervention at different levels.
 
Environmental Crime and Collaborative State Intervention explores the strengths and limitations of each form of collaboration, and discusses the experiences and prospects of collaborative state intervention from an individual, organisational, institutional and collective point of view. It provides analyses that will inform academic researchers about the 'real world' practices and experiences of practitioners, and provides an intellectual space for practitioners to examine critically what it is they do, and why they do it in a certain way.

Grant Pink is an Adjunct Research Fellow, School of Law, University of New England, Australia, and is employed by the Department of Environment in Canberra, Australia. As a practitioner and academic, he has over 25 years' experience in the field of environmental regulation and enforcement.
 
Rob White is Professor of Criminology at the University of Tasmania, Australia. He has a particular interest in green criminology and has written extensively on eco-justice and environmental harm, transnational environmental crime, environment courts, and environmental law enforcement.

Reviews

'Anyone who is interested in how collaborative networks form and what opportunities they offer will find [this] collection of essays rich and inspiring.' (From the foreword) - Malcolm K. Sparrow, Professor of the Practice of Public Management, Harvard University, USA   'The topic of environmental crime is increasingly seen as significant in policy, enforcement and academic circles. This timely collection aims to help connect these circles and provide a guidebook for practitioners - – whether experts or those new to the field. The book brings together an impressive range of contributors from environmental law, enforcement and regulation. The clear objective is to enable shared learning, conversations and collaborations - – increasingly vital endeavours given the cross-border, global challenge of environmental crimes and dangers.' - Nigel South, Director of the Centre for Criminology, University of Essex, UK
