Del Ecocidio y los procesos migratorios a la opacidad de la victimización ecológica
Revista Electrónica de Ciencia Penal y Criminología
Scientific research has proven that environmental damage does not respect borders and future predictions for both the health of ecosystemsand humans are not optimistic. At present there is nointernational criminal justice strategies devoted to protecting the environment from harmful effects of ecocide. However, the establishment of an ecocide law would help alleviate the suffering of native populations in those territories affected by environ-mental damage resulting in forced migration flows. To the same extent, it would be a valuable support for analysing disparate victimological archetypes. Environmental crime possesses widely implications for both victims, human and non-human species but also constitutes an outstanding framework at carrying out concrete studies focused on the right to the transnational ecological migration, climate refugees and so on. This work points to the current tate of the regime of internal and transboundary displacements through those norms that might be applicable at global geographic context for environ-mental victims as well as the way in which some negative effects, mainly produced by green crimes, environmental disasters and ecocidal practices, become unvisible for international bodies. This paper explores such issues contributing to the promotion of the proposed amendment to the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court to turn ecocide into the fifth crime against humanity and so aid to bridge over the loophole in this matter. To this end, the theoretical-scientific contribution of Green Criminology is essential as this field of study takes a critical interpretation in analysing environmental crime and the consequences of human behaviour for the environment, whether this of an individual, corporate or state nature..
