Current Development of New Victimology: Interdisciplinary Perspectives

Faculty of Law, University of Surabaya (UBAYA) in collaboration with APVI (Asosiasi Pengajar Viktimologi Indonesia), Hang Tuah University (UHT), Surabaya organize APVI Annual Meeting, International Conference and Course on Victimology 2018, which will be held in Wyndham Hotel, in Surabaya, Indonesia on November 26-29, 2018.


Over the last few decades, the studies about victim have evolved. It has changed the traditional  concept about victim from just persons who “witnessing, reporting, or suffering from the crime” to “emancipated person who standing for their own right."   Yet,  where do victims stand today and in the future is still a big question that needs to be addressed.


The study of these fields wouldn’t stop to thrive. The great dynamics of society and the development of crime around the world spurred with technology has emerged the new phase of victimological studies. Various crimes using many modern aspects of human life face new questions and new problems to the concept of victimization and the identity of victims itself. This area needs factual response from researchers and practitioner’s perspective so that victimology can be a susceptible tool to build the victim-oriented regime in the criminal justice system.


It is necessary to provide a special forum to encourage any scholars from all countries who have high concern to these issues. Faculty of Law, University of Surabaya collaborating with APVI (Association of Indonesia Victimology Lecturers) are eager to take this important role.


Therefore, International Conference on Victimology will be held for three days and engage any all victimology researches and practitioners, including victimologists,  legal scholars and practitioners , social sciences academicians from all levels, medical doctor and psychologists, law enforcement officials, victim assistants, governmental officials, social activists, students, etc.
