Environmental Crime, Law, and Justice

(View Complete Item Description)

Students will be introduced to Environmental Crime and Law.  Students will consider critical questions such as, why study environmental harm?  Should these harms be considered crimes?  Furthermore, where might criminal justice and environmental degradation intersect?  A theoretical foundation will be surveyed as well as a short historical analysis of environmental movements.  The course will then turn toward looking at Environmental Crime Investigation, which organizations and databases are used for data collection, and some future issues and challenges that may emerge.
