(p.313) Conclusion
Revisiting the “Ideal Victim”

Marian Duggan

Policy Press

This chapter reiterates the importance of Christie’s work, and this volume’s reinterrogation of the ‘Ideal Victim’, both historically and in our modern age. The chapter then explores the relationship between Christie’s work and the development of restorative and transitional justice movements. The chapter concludes with a discussion of the limitations of the volume and suggests further work to be undertaken both in keeping with Christie’s work and in the field of victimology more generally.

Keywords:   Nils Christie, victimology, ideal victim, criminology
