However, the field of comparative criminal justice is not independent of the field of international criminal justice, although there are some differences. Regarding the differences, Rounds (1999) has noted that the two approaches to crime and justice have somewhat different purposes. Specifically, it is reported that comparative criminal justice, as a field, seeks to describe and compare systems for the purpose of eliminating an ethnocentric attitude. International criminal justice, on the other hand, places a strong emphasis on improving criminal justice systems and examining issues that cross international boundaries.
