This chapter presents an analysis of environmental crime in Asia from the perspective of eco-global criminology. It outlines crimes such as illegal wildlife trade, illegal logging and pollution. The relationship between North and South is integral to understanding the nature and dynamics of transnational environmental harm within this region. So, too, is examination of the power relations and social interests within and between specific places within the region. Source, transit and destination countries vary for different commodities (such as timber, illegal wildlife and waste), but for some countries these are not mutually exclusive. Likewise, victimhood and offending behavior are best interpreted in the light of specific information and particular contexts.
