18th Annual Conference of the European Society of Criminology

Bosnia and Herzegovina
29 Aug 2018 to 1 Sep 2018

The Sarajevo Conference, in addition to dealing with the usual topics criminologists are working on that one can broadly and generally define as “crimes against humans”, simply has to tackle “crimes against humanity” as well. It is so because at the beginning of the 20th century the World War I started with the event that took place in Sarajevo (assassination of Franz Ferdinand, the Royal Prince of Hungary and of Bohemia). And, unfortunately, the very same century ended with war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide on the territory of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Thus, it does not come as a surprise that Bosnia and Herzegovina and Sarajevo have unfortunately been synonymous for “mass atrocity crimes” in Europe in the recent history. We therefore find the title “Crimes Against Humans and Crimes Against Humanity: Implications for Modern Criminology” fitting for the ESC 2018 Sarajevo conference.
