Abstract

War does not sit comfortably among the topics attracting criminological enquiry. In the first section of this chapter an attempt is made to identify why this is so. The suggestion is then put forward that only a criminology refusing official definitions of what the object of its study should be is capable of including this extreme form of organized violence within its analytical interests. The description of some of the features making war criminologically relevant and its analysis urgent forms the second section of this contribution.
