Access, Pollution, and Criminalisation: Do-It-Yourself Responses to Water Issues

Access, Pollution, and Criminalisation: Do-It-Yourself Responses to Water Issues

Bill McClanahan, a second-year master's student, delivered a paper, ‘Access, pollution, and criminalisation: Do-It-Yourself responses to water issues,’ at the fourth Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) Green Criminology Research Seminar at Northumbria University in Newcastle upon Tyne (England) on 4 October 2013. The seminar—one of six taking place at different locations in the United Kingdom between October 2012 and July 2014—was an all-day international event focusing on air, water, and soil pollution, as well as the dumping of traditional and ‘e’ wastes. The seminar also included a discussion of the economic, political, and social implications of such toxic environments and the emerging black markets in waste and prohibited products. Mr. McClanahan's talk was recorded and uploaded, and can be viewed at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UJ0nmJxLjr0.
