At a time where environmental concerns are at the forefront of economic, political and social agendas, green criminology has the potential to influence the understanding of and response to various environmental harms and crimes as they relate to humans and non-humans alike. Whereas green criminology has advanced understanding of many aspects of the nature and scale of environmental harm and crime, minimal attention has been devoted to understanding the gender dynamics of these activities. Ecofeminism and feminist methodologies could offer additional insights in the field of green criminology. In addition, less focus has been given to the role of perpetrators and victims of environmental harm and crime of all genders. In helping to shape how the world will address the range of environmental crises, green criminology can contribute to furthering knowledge as to the importance of a gendered lens in crafting solutions. This one-day event explores the varied intersections of environmental crime and gender with the aim of sharing knowledge with the criminological community and inspiring new research and collaborations.

The seminar is planned ahead of the yearly European Society of Criminology conference (in Malaga, Spain) in order for scholars to be able to attend both events without extra travel expenses and carbon footprint. Since 2012, green criminologists from around the world have been organising this (bi)yearly seminar that focuses on different aspects of environmental crime.

This year’s organizers are Lieselot Bisschop (Erasmus University Rotterdam, the Netherlands), Jenny Maher (University of South Wales, UK), Daan van Uhm (Utrecht University), and Tanya Wyatt (Northumbria University, UK)

We thank the following sponsors, who allowed us to host this seminar on Environmental Crime & Gender as a free event: University of South Wales, Erasmus University Rotterdam, and University of Malaga.
