About Criminological and Legal Consequences of Climate Change

This edited collection, the result of an international seminar held at the International Institute for the Sociology of Law, Oñati, Spain in 2010, explores the potential legal and criminological consequences of climate change, both domestically and for the international community. A novel feature of the book 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 on 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 social science discipline restricts our understanding of the societal consequences of climate change. It is hoped that this edited collection 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.

“The book is like most conferences in having a considerable range of material...the papers are all well referenced, edited and presented, allowing the reader the ability to follow up on any particular issues which could not be covered in detail in any particular paper. The concise notes about each author are also useful – informative without tipping into advertising. The book is a professional production, including a fulsome index which will be of considerable use to those wanting to pursue particular issues.

...a useful book, with its various papers bound to guide future research and analysis for some time to come.

” –  John Southalan, Oil, Gas & Energy Law Intelligence
