EJS 240 Environmental Crime

(Formerly SUS 240 Environmental Crime)

3 hours 

The growing global challenge of environmental crime undermines our ability to protect our land, water, species, and habitats. In this course, students confront the extent of these crimes and examine the diverse frameworks and debates that explain social, political, and economic drivers of environmental crime. While exploring solutions, students consider the complexity of legislation and legal frameworks that criminalize practices harmful to the environment. Case studies allow students to apply their knowledge to real life problems.
