The Transnational Environmental Crime (TEC) project investigates emerging trends in transnational environmental crime and examines the conditions for successful regulatory and enforcement responses.

Transnational Environmental Crime – including wildlife smuggling, timber trafficking, the black market in ozone depleting substances and other regulated or prohibited chemicals and wastes, illegal fishing and the ‘new’ crime of carbon fraud – is estimated to be one of the fastest growing areas of global criminal activity. As well as the environmental impacts and costs involved, TEC presents significant regional and global challenges through the involvement of criminal groups and smuggling syndicates, and its links with cross-over crimes such as corruption, money laundering and fraud. Our research will generate empirical advances and theoretical innovation through the application of network models to an under-researched area of transnational crime and an improved knowledge base for the development of informed and effective policy-making, law enforcement and compliance tools.
