Description

The 16th International Symposium is organizad by the the World Society of Victimology 2018 and co-organized by its Department of Applied Social Sciences and the World Society of Victimology.  The theme of the Symposium is Victims and Victimization: Moving towards an International Victimology.

As a centre of knowledge development and transfer, the World Society of Victimology’s mission is to create and apply knowledge to support social advancement and they aspire to become the gateway for easy access to these valuable resources.

They organise the Symposium with the aim to provide a platform for academics, professionals, policy-makers and practitioners to learn from each other, share experiences, explore challenges, and develop initiatives for the implementation of international victimology.

In their welcoming remarks, the World Society of Victimology explains that “in the world we live in today, the study of Victimology probably is more important than ever before. We are in dire need of more - and more reliable - data on the incidence of crime and other kinds and types of victimization. And we are eager to gain more profound knowledge about the real needs of real people who are victimized on a daily basis. Once we are aware of real needs, we want to better understand how to meet these needs. Such is the core of Victimology. It is about making this world a slightly better place for human beings who have been victimized”.
