Abstract:This special issue of 'Politikon' focuses on an under-researched topic in political science and international relations, namely environmental crime. Environmental crimes may involve a number of actors including host governments, states, rebel or terrorist groups, corporations and most of the time organised criminal organisations. Focusing on the interaction between these actors and the criminal act itself, forms the cornerstone of the majority of research done on environmental crime. Contributions: Editorial: Environmental crime in Sub-Saharan Africa: a review and future challenges (Derica Lambrechts); Wildlife crime and state security in South(ern) Africa: an overview of developments (Maano Ramutsindela); A flawed war: rethinking 'green militarisation' in the Kruger National Park (Mark Shaw & Julian Rademeyer); Security coordination in an illegal market: the transnational trade in rhinoceros horn (Annette Hübschle); Risks and fallacies associated with promoting a legalised trade in ivory (Ross Harvey); Money and marginalisation: the lost war against abalone poaching in South Africa (Derica Lambrechts & Khalil Goga); Environmental organised crime: the dirty business of hazardous waste disposal and limited state capacity in Africa (Derica Lambrechts & Michael Hector).
