Annotation: This volume contains the proceedings of an international conference sponsored by the United Nations Interregional Crime and Justice Research Institute. The conference presented the findings of the 1992 international crime (victim) survey conducted in 30 countries, discussed selected issues related to research and the use of victim surveys, and promoted the exchange of views and experiences among criminal justice policymakers and administrators.
Abstract: The main findings of the 1992 international survey focused on criminal victimization in the industrialized world, victimization in the developing world, a comparison of victimization in central and eastern Europe, and the attitudes of crime victims in Italy. Research issues discussed in these essays include data collection methods, reliability, problems in measuring victimization risk, and secondary analysis of international crime survey data. Policy issues addressed by conference participants included the implications of national and international victim surveys, the impact of local victimization surveys on criminal policies, the role of citizen surveys in developing police policy, and the need to monitor victims' needs and programs. This volume also contains a general conference report, session reports, and summaries of country and city surveys. 3 appendixes
