About this book

This edited collection – the result of a 2010 international seminar held at the International Institute for the Sociology of Law, Onati, Spain – explores the potential legal and criminological consequences of climate change, both domestically and for the international community.

A novel feature of Criminological and Legal Consequences of Climate Change is the consideration given to the potential synergies between the two disciplinary foci, thus to encourage among legal scholars and criminologists not only an analysis of the consequences of climate change from these perspectives, but to bring these fields together to provide a unique, inter-disciplinary exploration of the ways in which climate change does, or could, impact our societies. Such an inter-disciplinary approach is necessary given that climate change is a multifaceted phenomenon and one which is intimately linked across disciplines. To study this topic from the point of view of a single discipline restricts the understanding of the concerns of climate change.

Criminological and Legal Consequences of Climate Change will identify emerging areas of concern, illuminate areas for further research and, most of all, encourage future academic discussion on this most critical of issues.
