This course addresses the topic of victims, victimization, and responses to victimization as a human rights issue and a challenge to social justice in Canada and internationally. The course adopts a broad definition of victim - acknowledging both those who are recognized by existing law and legal systems such as the criminal justice system, and those who are not (e.g., psychological abuse, harms perpetrated by corporations, environmental degradation, and institutional policies and practices).
