EDITOR’S INTRODUCTION: In this chapter, Willemsen and Watson argue that the multifaceted nature of wildlife crime—particularly the illegal wildlife trade—warrants a transdisciplinary approach. Specifically, the authors pro- pose that the three tenets of knowledge as theory (KAT), knowledge as ele- ments (KAE), and knowledge in contexts (KIC) facilitates the opportunity to accurately reflect the intricacy of “wicked problems” like the illegal wildlife trade. Moreover, such an approach fosters an environment where academics, practitioners, and other stakeholders are able to develop constructive and meaningful partnerships.
