CRIMINAL CLIMATOLOGY AS A TOOL FOR IDENTIFYING CIVILIZATIONAL THREATS OF PATHOLOGICAL ORIGIN - FOR EXAMPLE, "WARS FOR WATER"

Wiesław Pływaczewski, Joanna Narodowska, Maciej Duda

Abstract


The present study is devoted to the problems of climate change forensics. Within its framework, the issue of the so-called wars for water, i.e. various types of problems related to the claims of states, social groups and individuals for access to water intakes, was taken up. This is undoubtedly one of the innovative issues analysed within the framework of ecocriminology. The title issue is analysed from national, regional and global perspectives. The authors of the study analyse and synthesize the existing scientific achievements of ecocriminology, with particular emphasis on criminal problems related to various claims for water. It should be emphasized that research in this area has so far been undertaken almost exclusively within the circle of Anglo-Saxon criminology. The gap in Polish criminological literature is filled by representatives of the Olsztyn School of Ecocriminology. At the same time, the authors of the article try to answer the question of whether there are relations between climatic and weather phenomena and criminal and pathological behaviour.
