CRIMES COMMITTED IN TIMES OF WAR, RECALLED IN POST-MEMORY

Fatima Rodrigues

Abstract


Although war is a propitious context for different kinds of crime, criminology has underestimated its analysis. However, in recent years there has been a reversal of this trend, with a growing interest of criminologists in the phenomenon of war. This paper intends to make a modest contribution to broaden the debate regarding the criminological understanding of war through an exploratory analysis about how crimes, that have been committed in relation to the context of the Portuguese colonial war in Guinea-Bissau and the Algeria independence war from French rule, are remembered by the generations that did not live the conflicts directly, but who summon them in their narratives.
