This course will analyze victimization issues with two emphases: one on restorative justice practices and secondly on evidenced based decision-making. Criminal victimization will be addressed in a multidisciplinary approach that involves political, economic, societal and technical trends and considerations. The objectives of this course are not limited solely to accomplishing empathy and understanding for victims, but also to emphasize prevention and appropriate intervention. Thus, a key goal of this course is to increase knowledge of how and why victimization occurs so that future injustices may be reduced or eliminated altogether. Class Participation/ In-Class Exercises: Each week, questions may be assigned in class based on subject matter in the text and/or class discussion.
