Critical criminology is a diverse area of criminological theory and research that sheds light on how inequality and power relations shape who commits crime, why someone commits crime, what becomes labeled as crime, and how the criminal justice system responds to crime. While somewhat different in their approaches, these various schools of critical criminology share the goal of challenging traditional criminology's neglect of inequality and power issues.

Michael A. Critical criminologists have concerned themselves with crimes of the powerful; gendered, sexualized harm and intimate partner violence; raced harm and racial oppression; hate crime; the war on drugs; the war on immigrants; police violence and the militarization of the police; mass incarceration and privatized criminal justice; carceral regimes; mass imprisonment; the death penalty, and alternative forms of justice including a form of restorative justice—among many other substantive concerns.
The call for a Southern criminology that incorporates the outlook and concerns of the Global South is one significant development within critical criminology. Critical criminology has the potential to be of special relevance within the context of a historical period characterized by intense conflicts in relation to the political economy and civil society.
