ABSTRACT: Victimological measures for the prevention of crimes provide the foundation for an all-encompassing and hopefully long-lasting approach to solving the risk of the public being victimized and assist the individuals “designated” to be victims of a crime. This article deals with the question of “ecological victimization” (the damages that an individual has endured as a result of ecologically harmful activities) and predicts the role that victimologists will have to play in preventing the consequences of climate change and other ecological degradations in the future.
Keywords: victimization prevention, green victimology, natural resources, ecology
