Victims’ wishes for compensation: The immaterial aspect

Malsch, Marijke

Malsch and Carriere observe that victims have various expectations of the criminal justice system. These expectations relate to both the process of the system and the outcome of the trial. The authors examine victims’ expectations in relation to Dutch legal procedures for compensation of immaterial losses suffered by victims. Their analysis includes a table presenting different types of damages and compensation, and suggestions for further research into this subject.
