This day-long seminar will be devoted to understanding victims and victimisation (broadly defined to include related topics such as fear of crime).
We would like to see colleagues offer either research-based papers; for example, on experiences of victimisation or the treatment of victims by criminal justice or other agencies; theoretical papers which aim to take forward our understanding of victimisation; and practice-based papers which advance work with victims.
Colleagues are also welcome to suggest alternatives to papers; for example, roundtable or panel discussions. We are hoping to include six papers (or equivalent).
The seminar will take place at the School of Law at the University Of Leeds. Lunch will be provided.
We remain keen to receive papers from colleagues from all stages of their careers and are not limited to just those people from Universities based in Yorkshire and Humberside.
Please register your interest and provide a title and abstract to Lisa Burns by 1st August 2012.
