Protecting environmental victims

Synonyms:
Reducing environmental victimology
Context:
Environmental victimology is founded on the principles of the UN Declaration on Victims of Crime and Abuse of Power (1985). A victimology perspective stems from individual rights and prevention of, and redress for, personal injury. It relates both to conventional victimology and the so-called 'radical victimology' which more broadly embraces any form of human suffering.
Implementation:
As new forms of environmental victimisation emerge, and traditional criminals turn to environmental crime, environmental victimology will address prescient questions: defining and identifying 'environmental victims'; the moral and legal status of the unborn victim; victim participation; multiple, indirect and time-latent causation; cross-border victimisation; environmental blackmail; the costs of environmental victimisation.
