Capturing Victims' Voices on Justice through Research

Event Dates

You are invited to participate in the Center for Victim Research’s virtual research convening focused on Capturing Victims’ Voices on Justice through Research. A panel of three keynote speakers will share their work and recommendations for researching diverse victims’ experiences and perspectives on different systems and models of justice.

Dr. Carolyn West will present her decades of research on Black women’s experiences of domestic and sexual violence, and treatment interventions from a social justice perspective.

Dr. Jeanette Hussemann will share her Perceptions of Justice project capturing voices of human trafficking survivors and their views on traditional, procedural, restorative, and transitional justice.

Dr. Henrika McCoy will present her research on the victimization experiences of young men and boys of color, and their perceptions of traditional and social justice.

Attendees will then have the opportunity to ask questions of the experts and take part in small breakout discussions exploring the benefits, challenges, and policy implications of engaging in this research. The Center for Victim Research will conclude the convening by sharing key resources to support researchers and practitioners in this work.
