World Society of Victimology
Two-day Introductory Course to Victimology
The Hague, 15-16 May 2012.
Preceding the 14th International Symposium of the World Society of Victimology a two-day introductory course in victimology is planned on 15 and 16 May 2012.
The programme consists of two full days of lectures, with the first day particularly reviewing the study of victimisation, while the second primarily addresses responses to victimisation.
The course will offer practitioners, policy makers, students and other interested parties the opportunity to gain insight into key issues in academic victimology, provided by leading experts in the field. It aims to deepen their understanding of familiar subjects, while simultaneously offering an overview of the range of topics addressed by victimology. The course is open to anyone with an interest in academic victimology. Participants are not expected to have previous training in social sciences in general or victimology in particular. Attending the WSV-symposium is not a requirement for the course, although symposium participants will receive a discount on the course fee.
The fee for participation in the course is 190 €. For symposium attendees a rate of 90 € applies. The course will be given in English and will only take place with a minimum of 30 participants. The deadline registration for the course has been extended.
