Abstract and Keywords

This chapter explores the nature of victimization from white-collar and corporate crime. This is known to be considerable and to exceed that from conventional crime. However, much more detailed and focused research is needed to ascertain its scope and its impact on individual victims. It is also related to social inequality in that it has a particularly severe impact on the poorest and least powerful. Rendering this impact more visible is also necessary for establishing better means of controlling it and thereby reducing victimization.

Keywords: white-collar crime, corporate crime, victims, victimization, social inequality
