Crimes against humanity are amongst the most shocking violations imaginable. Savelsberg’s text provides a much-needed criminological insight to the subject, exploring explanations of and responses to human rights abuses. Linking human rights scholarship with criminological theory, the book is divided into three parts:

Part 1: Examines the legal and historical approach to the topic within a criminological framework

Part 2: Unpicks the aetiology of human rights offending, using detailed case studies such as the Holocaust and the Darfur genocide

Part 3: Explores institutional responses to crimes and uses criminological theory to offer solutions

Seminal yet concise, Crime and Human Rights is written for advanced students, postgraduates and scholars of crime, crime control and human rights. With its fresh and original approach to a complex topic, the book’s appeal will span across other disciplines from politics and sociology to development studies, law, and philosophy.
