Timber Trafficking in Vietnam : Crime, Security and the Environment, Hardback Book

Timber Trafficking in Vietnam : Crime, Security and the Environment Hardback

Part of the Palgrave Studies in Green Criminology series


This book is the first systematic investigation into the problem of timber trafficking in Vietnam, providing a detailed understanding of the typology of, victimization from, and key factors driving this crime.

The book first reveals a multifaceted pattern of timber trafficking in Vietnam, comprising five different components: harvesting, transporting, trading, supporting, and processing.

It then assesses the crime's victimization from timber trafficking.

Thanks to the employment of a broad conceptual framework of human security, Cao reveals that timber trafficking has substantial harmful impacts on all seven elements of human security: economic, food, health, environmental, personal, community, and political; whilst being closely interconnected, they vary between different groups of victims.

Cao concludes by offering five solutions to better control of timber trafficking in the context of Vietnam, which crucially involve refining the current policy framework of forest governance and improving the efficiency of law enforcement.

A wide-ranging and timely study, this book will hold particular appeal for scholars of green criminology and environmental harm.
