ABOUT WORLD SOCIETY OF VICTIMOLOGY

The World Society of Victimology (WSV) is a not-for-profit, nongovernmental organization with Special Category consultative status with the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) of the United  Nations and the Council of Europe.

The purpose of the WSV is to advance victimological research and practices around the world; to encourage interdisciplinary and comparative work and research in this field, and to advance cooperation between international, national, regional, and local agencies and other groups who are concerned with the problems of victims.

The origins of the WSV are rooted in the works of the early victimologists and the convening of the “First International Symposium on Victimology” organized by Israel Drapkin in Israel in 1973. This symposium provided scholars, practitioners, researchers and students with the first international forum to focus on victimology. The WSV works with intergovernmental organizations, as an active promoter of research and program development on victims, assistance to victims, and victim rights.

It pioneered a special United Nations’ charter of victims’ rights, which resulted in the General Assembly Resolution (A/RES/40/3 4) named the Declaration of Basic Principles of Justice for Victims of Crime and Abuse of Power.

The membership of the World Society of Victimology consists of a wide variety of individuals — from students to academics, from interested individuals to government officials — dedicated to improving the plight of victims of crime and the abuse of power around the globe.

The WSV’s members represent many organizations in the International Scientific and Professional Advisory Council (ISPAC) to the Crime Program at the United Nations and serve on its Board of Directors. These activities are achieved mainly through the networking of persons concerned with the theory of victimology and the practice of victim support.
