LISTEN: Giving a voice to victims in the Irish criminal process

DeR0KMeW0AEZwie

Prof. Shane Kilcommins, Dr Susan Leahy & Dr Eimear Spain recently spoke to the UL Research office about their research into victims in the Irish criminal process.

Many of us will become a victim of crime at some point in our lives, yet many victims choose not to report these crimes to the police. Ultimately, a large number of victims in Ireland are not engaging in the criminal justice system.

Prof. Shane Kilcommins, Dr Susan Leahy & Dr Eimear Spain from the Centre for Crime, Justice and Victim Studies (CCJVS) and the School of Law have sought to better understand this phenomenon with a view to understanding how best to engage with and support victims of crime, while also informing public policy and legislative reform. By focusing their research on the place of victims within the criminal justice system, the team is giving a voice to underrepresented minorities including victims with disabilities.
