Bids Invited to host the 2021 International Symposium on Victimology

Filed in Announcements by on February 12, 2018

The WSV is pleased to invite bids to host the 2021 International Symposium on Victimology.

The Prospectus Outline Symposium 2021 and the AGREEMENT-DRAFT – EXAMPLE are now available for download.

Bids can be lodged any time after the announcement but must be lodged before midnight (Central Australia Standard Time) Friday 18 May 2018.

All bids will be submitted to the WSV Executive Members the week following 18 May so they can be reviewed.

On Sunday 10 June 2018 the WSV EC will discuss the bids. As one half of the WSV EC membership will change on Monday 11 June, the new members of the WSV EC will be invited to attend that meeting. If any bidder wants to address in-person the WSV EC will make an arrangement that will happen before the symposium closes. The WSV EC intends to announce the host for the 2021 symposium at the 2018 symposium closing ceremony.

The President of the WSV (or the Secretary-General) will negotiate the ‘contractual understanding’ (that is an Agreement) with the successful bidder after the symposium but it should be settled before 31 December 2018.

The successful bidder should provide progress reports at least annually and must in 2020 host the WSV EC annual meeting. The detail for such meeting will be negotiated but must include a venue for the meeting, a site visit and refreshments & lunch during the meeting, which ordinarily happens on a weekend and runs for no more than 2 days.

Please direct any question and lodge your bid by email –
