I have 35 years of experience, and specialize in the field of victimology with specific knowledge in the areas of victim (state) victim compensation, juvenile delinquency and sexual victimization. I have published on such topics as victimology, criminology, juvenile law and psychological damage after victimization. I have testified on victim assistance and compensation. I have spent my total professional life on research and teaching victimology introducing this field into the curriculum of social workers in Germany, and as member of an international research institute, I can now concentrate fully on related issues. 15 years experience in working with a leading international non-governmental organization in the field.
