This book explores the interaction of money laundering (ML) with environmental crime (EC) though the investigation and analysis of environmental 'predicate crime', and illegally derived assets which are generated by the offence. Focussing on two types of environmental crime - wildlife and forestry offences- the book will enhance the understanding of EC-ML offences globally, exploring EC-ML linkages in Europe, South America, India, China and Africa. Filling the current void in literature on this subject, the authors address key issues including the socio-economic impacts of money laundering and environmental crime; the 'journey' of the illegally derived proceeds of environmental crime; and the prevention and enforcement of international laws to combat the offences. Drawing from examples such as Africa's ivory trade, the trade of exotic species in Latin America and tiger poaching in India and China, Environmental Crime and Money Laundering will contribute to new knowledge to this growing area of research. This book will be of great interest to students and scholars of environmental, economic and transnational crime, and international criminal law.show more
