International victimology: Selected papers from the 8th international symposium

Sumner, C., Israel, M.ORCID: 0000-0002-1263-8699, O'Connell, M. and Sarre, R. (Eds) (1996) International victimology: Selected papers from the 8th international symposium. Australian Institute of Criminology.


This book contains an edited selection of papers presented at the 8th International Symposium on Victimology. The nexus between theoretical and practical victimology and its relationship to criminology is an important theme within the papers. Matters affecting victims, such as victim impact statements and compensation, victimisation in families, gender bias in the legal system, victims of war in Bosnia, and victims of human rights in South Africa are all debated, as are issues related to power, politics and victimisation; victim surveys and methodology; and victim services.
