Impacts of Timber Trafficking on Human Security

  • Ngoc Anh Cao
Chapter
Part of the Palgrave Studies in Green Criminology book series (PSGC)

Abstract

This chapter reveals the victimisation from timber trafficking in the context of Vietnam. Victimisation can be seen in all seven interconnected dimensions of human security: economic, food, health, environmental, personal, community and political security. The data analysis shows that some pairs of these dimensions prove difficult to separate, thus they are grouped into four broad sections: (1) economic and food security, (2) health and environmental security, (3) personal security and (4) community and political security. In each dimension, this research looks for various insights into who, how and how much it is impacted by timber trafficking.
