Abstracts of Current Research :

Victims of terrorism: This research examines the personal social services and the social assistance programs designed to help individuals and families who lost their dear ones in a hostile (terrorist) act. The research focuses on the definition, nature and size of the target population, the different entitlements offered to victims, survivors and their dependents. It focuses on state and voluntary services that help civilians have suffered physical and mental injuries, loss of income or damage to their property as a result of an act of terrorism. The study includes an evaluation of these programs from the victims' perspective.

Local welfare bureausserving crime victims: The policy and administration of personal social services –:Israeldoes not yet have a program designed to assist crime victims. When in need, police and other agencies tend to refer crime victims to the local welfare bureaus. The study examines how local welfare bureaus  meet crime victims, including victims of serious crimes and provide them with the necessary personal social services. Service provision to this group is associated with considerable discretion. No legal "right" to such victims exists and no entitlements are formally ascribes. The study examines differences between local authorities in the provision and funding of personal social services to people who were criminally victimized.

Restorative Justice – Victim offender conferencing program adopted by the youth probation services.  This study examines the Israeli experience in applying restorative justice principles in the youth probation services. What began as an experiment in one town became a state wide project, applying various types of conferencing to engage crime victims and offenders in a dialogue, aimed at applying ‘re-integrative shaming’ principles, reducing re-offending by the perpetrators and empowering crime victims. Unique evidence emerges from multi-cultural conferencing experience where victims and offenders, coming from different communities in Israel, engage in a joint process, led by the probation services.

The personal expenses of people who were criminally victimized. People who were criminally victimized, face themselves, and their families, a significant reduction in their earnings and a loss of income. Furthermore, because of the different traumas involved, crime victims have to pay, themselves, for the different medical, mental and rehabilitation services that they need. The study includes families who lost a member in a man-slaughter case, women who suffered violence and fled to a refuge themselves, sometime with their children, and others who were  criminally victimized. The study focuses on the direct and indirect (short and long-term) costs that these victims faced.
