The aim of the research is firstly to gain a deeper understanding of how victim-survivors of sexual violence perceive, experience and understand justice. Secondly the aim is to explore if and how this knowledge can be used to expand and develop strategies which could meet the justice needs and interests of victim-survivors in- and outside the criminal justice system.
The research will use a victim-centred approach and attempt to answer the following questions:
- How do people who have been subjected to sexual violence experience and understand (in)justice?
- How do people who have been subjected to sexual violence experience and/or perceive traditional and/or non-traditional justice mechanisms and practices?
- How do victim-survivors’ justice ideas and interests compare with different justice mechanisms and practices?
