Victimology and Human Security: New Horizons

Selection of papers presented at the 13th International Symposium on Victimology, 2009, Mito, Japan

Edited by: Hidemichi Morosawa, John J.P. Dussich, Gerd Ferdinand Kirchhoff

This book will be important for academics and practitioners in justice systems, psychology, and psycho-traumatology. It looks at rape-, torture-, and dating-victimizations, as well as disaster- and environmental-victimization. The book deals with migrants, refugees, minorities, the homeless, and trafficked humans. These diverse fields are held together by an evidence-based search to improve on the situation of surviving-yet-suffering victims. It includes a selection of papers presented at the 13th international symposium on victimology, hosted by the World Society of Victimology and Tokiwa University, Mito, Japan, on August 23-28, 2009.
