Cyber Victimology provides a global socio-legal-victimological perspective on victimisation
online, written in clear, non-technical terms, and presents practical solutions for the problem.
Halder qualitatively analyses the contemporary dimensions of cyber-crime victimisation,
aiming to fill the gap in the existing literature on this topic. A literature review, along with case
studies, allows the author to analyse the current situation concerning cyber-crime victimisation.
A profile of victims of cyber-crime has been developed based on the characteristics of different
groups of victims. As well, new policy guidelines on the basis of UN documents on cybercrimes
and victim justice are proposed to prevent such victimisation and to explore avenues for
restitution of justice for cases of cyber-crime victimisation. This book shows how the effects of
cyber victimisation in one sector can affect others. This book also examines why perpetrators
choose to attack their victim/s in specific ways, which then have a ripple effect, creating greater
harm to other members of society in unexpected ways.
This book is suitable for use as a textbook in cyber victimology courses and will also be of
great interest to policy makers and activists working in this area.
