Return of PVC's Lunchtime Seminars: Green Crime

Prof John Baldock is pleased to announce the return of the PVC’s Lunchtime Seminars programme with an event that looks at the illegal exploitation of the environment.
‘Green Crime’

Wednesday 4th April 12.30pm-2pm
Venue TBC

The Coalition Government has pledged to be the 'greenest government ever’, setting out an agenda to safeguard the natural environment. Green crime, the illegal exploitation of the environment, is high on this agenda with half of the targets focusing directly on criminal activity or proposing legislation to help protect the environment. This PVC Seminar will be a wide ranging discussion on 'Green Crime', from the quantification of illegal behaviour, through to characterising 'green crime' in the jurisdiction and environmental activism when laws are perceived to have failed.

Speakers will include Chief Inspector Mark Harrison (English Heritage, and Honorary Research Fellow, SECL), Prof Bill Howarth (KLS), Dr David Roberts (DICE), Prof Chris Rootes (SSPSSR) and Dr Freya St John (DICE).

A light lunch is available from 12:30pm, together with tea and coffee, and the Seminar itself will start around 1pm.

All are welcome, but do let meknow if you would like to come so that I can get a sense of numbers.
