Canadian Victims of Crime: Critical Insights

Front Cover
Canadian Scholars’ Press, Sep 1, 2009 - Victims of crimes - 280 pages
0 Reviews

Victims of crime are poorly understood. Helping institutions often have counterintuitive, even potentially harmful, impacts. Support services are generally little known, poorly funded, and limited in scope - all of which perpetuates the powerless role of the victim in the criminal justice system.

J. Scott Kenney unpacks the systemic problems that are so common among victims. With emphasis on victims' lived experiences and extensive first hand accounts, Kenney pairs excerpts from the press, legal documents, and other relevant material to contextualize each voice.
