Final Project Discussion: Interaction of the Victim with the System of Criminal Justice
For my final project, I would like to address everything concerning victimology and the victim’s minimal participation in the criminal process within the justice system. The primary victim of the crime can have an essential and leading role during the process. It is fair to say that the only interaction between the victim and the criminal justice system lies in their testimony and in the position of witnessing the events that occurred, intending to reach the clarification of the facts and without worrying in any way by the victim as such. However, interest in the concept of victim increased, to the extent that the investigators pointed out that the victim’s participation was enormous during the crime and that they even led to the commission of the facts on certain occasions.
Likewise, it is essential to mention the need to pay more and more attention to the victim, and no longer so much to the perpetrator, analyzing both individual behaviors and their relationship with the perpetrator, establishing patterns of behavior that prevent future crimes. In this way, the need arises to grant the victim’s actual participation during the process, giving new approaches to the interaction he/she has with the justice system and offering him/her a realistic and dynamic image, as an active subject and not as a mere object used to clarify the commission of the criminal act (Groombridge, 2016). This would help lay the foundations for the improvement and credibility of the victims, who are the first and most affected during the commission of a criminal act, and would help them to obtain data on the individuals who are victimized, including not only to the official victims but also to those who do not make a formal complaint.
