JSB290 Victimology

Unit synopsis

Victimology has emerged alongside criminology as a specific discipline and specifically focuses on understanding and explaining of victimisation as well as informing policy development specifically for victims. This subject considers theoretical work produced by victimologists, how victimisation is defined and understood, victim's relationships with the criminal justice system, the development of victim's rights, victim's advocacy, and the social and political status of victims. This course will equip students to critically evaluate policy, programs and research that addresses victimisation, victims experience in the criminal justice system, as well as victim's needs and rights.
