Climate Change, Law and Victimisation

30th October 2013 – ICOSS Meeting Room – 13:00-18:00

This 1-day workshop will facilitate discussion and an exchange of ideas and data concerning lawyers’ and criminologists’ knowledge of crime and victimisation with the sophisticated techniques developed by geographers of mapping out which areas climate change/environmental damage hits hardest, thus arriving at a clearer picture of the links between climate change, environmental crime and victimisation. The session seeks to marry theories about environmental crime with 'hard' geographical data and will also invite contributions from legal practitioners in the field, including the head of the prosecution department of the Environment Agency.
