Governance of transnational environmental crime: Case study research on the illegal trade in e-waste and tropical timber.

This PhD research analyses the empirical reality of governing transnational environmental crime flows. The studied cases are the illegal trade in electronic waste (e-waste) and tropical timber. This study first examines the emergence and social organisation of these cases. This entails looking at the scope and impact of the flows and at which legal, illegal and informal actors are involved, how they interact and what drives them. Building on the gained insights, this study analyses the governance reality. Relating back to the responsive regulatory pyramid and networked governance, this study makes several observations about the governance actors and their interaction.

The research setting is the Port of Antwerp and particularly the flows between Europe and West and Central Africa. This research is based on a qualitative multi-method research design combining a document analysis of various primary and secondary sources, 81 interviews with key informants, and field visits.
