CRIM12-210: Forensic Victimology

Description

Criminology predominantly focuses on explanations for criminal behaviour and the operations of the criminal justice system at the expense of ignoring the place of victims. Yet the 'study of victims and victimization has the potential of reshaping the entire discipline of criminology' (Fattah, 1997, p. 183). This subject addresses the lack of attention paid to the victims of crime and introduces students to the subdiscipline of victimology.
