    Abstract

    The dissertation describes heinous crimes which occurred in Sierra Leone, Rwanda and Bosnia during the 1990s. International crimes – war crimes, genocide and crimes against humanity – were committed on a large scale in each of the conflicts. Criminologist ignored international crimes in the past, however, with the emergence of ad hoc tribunals and undeniably the development of international criminal law in the past two decades, new types of criminology emerged – criminology of genocide and supranational criminology – as companions to the international criminal law. Crimes previously accepted as inevitable during war, such as state sanctioned mass killings, rape and recruitment of children into military ranks, are now condemned by juris prudence of the ad hoc tribunals and the Statute of the International Criminal Court.
