Douglas J. Dallier

Assistant Professor

Douglas J. Dallier earned his PhD from the Florida State University College of Criminology and Criminal Justice and has published articles on topics such as social injury, state crime, authoritarianism, unjust persecution, the war on drugs, and scientific falsifiability.

His previous research activities and the organizational dynamics involved were in facilitating the Holocaust and other state facilitated, socially injurious calamities like the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

In addition to these activities, Dr. Dallier has conducted national-level studies concerning attitudes toward capital punishment. He also served as archivist for the late Cambridge criminologist Sir Leon Radzinowicz, which played a small role in assisting the International Criminal Court in the successful prosecution of former Yugoslavian president Slobodan Milosevic for war crimes.

Dr. Dallier's areas of interest include comparative criminology, crimes against humanity, unjust persecution, critical and conflict perspectives, and the evolution of thought on the etiology (and control) of deviant and criminal behavior.

His current research concerns the cross-national comparability of Japanese crime statistics, the development of anti-racist pedagogy, and understanding the bureaucratic agency involved in perpetuating social injury.

He has previously taught criminology and sociology courses at Florida State University and the University of Maryland Global Campus – Asian division in Okinawa, Japan.
