Title:
Understanding old age and victimisation: a critical exploration
Authors:
Powell, Jason; Wahidin, Azrini
Abstract:
The purpose of paper is to shine light on the under‐theorised relationship between old age and victmisation. In classical criminological studies, the relationship between “age”, victimisation and crime has been dominated by analysis of younger people's experiences. This paper aims to address this knowledge deficit by exploring older people's experiences by linking it to the social construction of vulnerability.
