The Netherlands has been concerned about crime victims for the past 40 years, as evidenced by their early development of a national victimization survey and their multi-agency involvement in helping victims deal with the psychological distress and tangible losses that result from a criminal victimization. Even though the Netherlands has progressive law enforcement and victim services agencies, there is also an undercurrent of outgroup bias and anti-immigrant sentiment.
This program will expose students to academics who study victimization, to approaches to policy problems different from what are used in the United States, to hate crime, and to counseling and social work in a foreign country. Students will be required to think critically and to write a paper comparing an aspect of government responses to victimization in the United States and the Netherlands.
During the embedded travel component, housing will consist of hotel/hostel accommodations.
The process for enrolling in an embedded course varies according to the instructor and/or department. The program leader has indicated that in order to enroll in the course and travel component, students must contact Barry Ruback.
