Abstract

This chapter examines the position of crime victims within the criminal justice system of England and Wales. It begins with an introduction to the development of the victims' movement in the 1970s. The chapter then considers key issues such as the scope of ‘victimhood’; victim rights; the needs and expectations of victims within the criminal justice process; and the policy response to such issues. It concludes by posing critical questions of the present reform agenda.
