In chapter four, The “forgotten criminology of genocide”, some of the historical influences within criminology established in chapter two are revisited to highlight the connections the discipline has to the topic of genocide. In particular, these connections pertain to the Holocaust, defining genocide as an international crime in the aftermath of the Second World War, and thinking about how the contemporary notion of “genocide” can be informed sociologically to recognise its ongoing violence and pervasiveness throughout the 20th and 21st centuries.
