British Society of Criminology: The Future of Green Criminology

March 2016

Last March, the Centre Law hosted a British Society of Criminology Regional Seminar on the subject of 'The Future of Green Criminology'. The event attracted experts on environmental crime and criminal justice from around the UK as well as from Spain and the Netherlands. Also present were representatives of NGOs including Amnesty International. The papers presented sparked extended discussion on a number of significant topics including: the commodification of water; the use of visual imagery to better communicate the impact of environmental harm; compensation for victims of environmental harm and the exploitation of aboriginal lands for the purposes of oil exploration. 

Prof. Matthew Hall said "today's discussion highlights the significance of continued study of environmental harm in the 21t century: and that Lincoln Law School along with the Lincoln Centre for Environmental Law and Justice is contributing at the forefront of these debates"
