By: Christopher Hamerton (author), Julia Davidson (author)Hardback

Pre-Order released 30th July 2018


International Perspectives on Child Victimisation offers a comprehensive overview of the established themes and emergent debates relating to the abuse and victimization of children. Highlighting key areas of global concern, and illustrated with detailed case studies of important developments, Julia Davidson and Christopher Hamerton address child abuse, child poverty, child exploitation, child prostitution, and child imprisonment within the context of children's rights, and international legal and policy issues. Their focus in this regard is on the `place' of the child in the context of current victimology and social justice discourses, as they explore the social, cultural, and political context of international child victimization. A solid introduction to child victimization for both undergraduate and postgraduate audiences, this book will also appeal to practitioners and policy-makers engaged in child protection and intervention.
