About Green Criminology and Security Studies
Analysts argue over the title of this recent concept of green criminology. South (1998) and White (2008) suggest that it has yet to emerge as a developed theory. Instead, it is a perspective. White (2008, p. 15) identifies three important principles of green criminology that must not be violated:
- Environmental rights and environmental justice based on the protection of the natural world for its own sake and for the enhancement of human life.
- Ecological citizenship and ecological justice based on humans as part of the natural world rather than the assumed human domination over nature.
- Amimal rights and species justice based on the protection of nonhumans against humans, including their exploitation as of entertainment, research subjects, food, and labor.
