Peacemaking criminology is a non-violent movement against oppression, social injustice and violence as found within criminology, criminal justice and society in general. With its emphasis on inter-personal, intra-personal and spiritual integration, it is well connected to the emerging perspective of positive criminology.

According to Conklin, "[peacemaking criminology] regards crime as the product of a social structure that puts some groups at a disadvantage, sets people against one another, and generates a desire for revenge."[1]
