Peggs, Kay (2023) New directions please! Veganising green criminology. In: Milne, Emma , Davies, Pam , Heydon, James , Peggs, Kay and Wyatt, Tanya, (eds.) Gendering green criminology. Bristol University Press. ISBN 9781529229615


This chapter is written from the philosophical perspective of ethical veganism, which opposes speciesism and the commodity status of nonhuman animals. Through this lens, the chapter offers a critical consideration of gendering green criminology by drawing in issues associated with species and human-nonhuman animal entanglements. Although some green criminologists have overlooked or marginalised the position of nonhuman animals, green criminology can encourage thinking about the human exploitation of nonhuman animals. As well, criminology that is not ‘green’ has the tools and perspectives to study more effectively harms and crimes to all species. Drawing on early feminist criminological thought and by embracing a non-speciest intersectional approach, this chapter concludes with a call to veganise green criminology via activism, with the aim of making a better world.
