Project description

By means of multiple questioning of young victims, starting from their experiences and perceptions, we aim to get a broad view on the nature, significance and consequences of victimiation in general, and to view more in depth the victimisation of crimes against property and violent crime. Alongside the consequences of becoming a victim, we also wish to study secondary victimization.
