Le vittime di corporate violence e i loro bisogni

Translated title of the contribution: [Autom. eng. transl.] Corporate violence victims and their needs

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

These 'National guidelines for Social Workers, Victims Support and Restorative Justice Organizations' are aimed at providing a practical and specific tool for a better implementation, by Italian organizations and professionals providing victims of crime with assistance and support, of Directive 2012/29/EU, with specific respect to victims of corporate crime and corporate violence. Building on a previous theoretical and empirical research, within the framework of an international research project on 'Victims and Corporations', this chapter focuses on the peculiarities and problems related to corporate violence victimization, i.e. to criminal offences committed by corporations in the course of their legitimate activities, which result in harms to natural persons’ health, integrity or life, and whose victims experience a whole range of distinctive risks of secondary and repeat victimisation, of intimidation and retaliation, as well as of harm to their dignity and private and family life. An overview of the harms and risks suffered by these victims is therefore indispensible in view of a competent and effective individual assessment of their specific needs, in order to grant them in an effective way the assistance and support that the Directive establishes as their right.
