About this item
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.
