dc.description.abstract Although criminology is an academic discipline that studies crime, it has neglected the study international crimes thus hampering the quest to respond to the etiology of genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes. Two arguments are advanced as reasons why criminology has neglected to study international crimes, first, the close link between state or state actors to criminologists and criminology research, and second the limitations that mainstream criminology theories encounter when explaining the collective nature of committing international crimes. To this end I examine the scope of international crimes through a comparative analysis of the specific national crimes that mainstream criminology studies. en_US
