The title of Diane's research is Harming the Earth for Profit - the global transference of environmental harm.
The aim of this research is to contribute to a broader understanding of environmental ‘harm’ within the eco-global criminology paradigm. This research is less concerned with how harm is regulated in the legal sense and more concerned with those social processes and ideologies that normalize and legitimize the transference of environmental harm in the global context.
Using a framework of specific case studies, this research will explore definitions, concepts and types of environmental harm, particular ideologies and social processes and the behaviour of global actors. An initial case study will focus on contaminated toys. The inductive nature of this research means that information gathered from this and future case studies will shape how the research evolves.
Diane's research interests include:
