This chapter describes the distribution of environmental hazards and benefits, the development of the environmental justice paradigm and competing definitions of “justice” within the context of criminology and criminal justice. In addition, attention is given to how justice disparities are measured (spatial methodologies) and a critical assessment of evidence from research, law and policy in this area. The chapter concludes with emerging issues, new constituencies, and a discussion of the relationship between the local and the global.
