  • Overview

    Assessment: essay [50%], group campaign [50%]
    This module will consider the emergence of victimology and the role of the victims of crime movement in shaping theoretical and practical developments. In addition, students will learn about the role of the victim in the criminal justice process and will have the opportunity to examine key case studies that have been influential. The module is specifically designed for students in their second year as it builds on their introduction to victims in their first year studies but pushes their theoretical knowledge further. As such the module is a good combination of practical issues in victim-hood and theoretical debates.
