I am very excited to welcome you to the course Victimology. The aim of this course is to analyze crime victims, their needs and legal rights. But foremost how society meets these needs and rights through legal and other measures. The course provides interdisciplinary knowledge about victimization from a behavioral and social perspective.
The course offers a platform for discussing questions such as the concept of victimization, i.e. who is defined as a crime victim, what needs of support and protection victims are understood to have and how legal actors and other actors in society can offer assistance. This will be done by up-to-date examples in different victimological areas.
The course will contain lectures and seminars. For each seminar you are to have written a short paper on a related topic of your choice or with more specific directions. The course will be examined though active participation of the seminars and an examining paper at the end.
