Criminal Victimisation in Greece and the Fear of Crime: A 'Paradox' for Interpretation

Christina M. Zarafonitou, International Review of Victimology, 16 (3), 2009, 277-300.

 

The measurement of victimisation was rare and sporadic in Greece until 2005 when it was included in the EU International Crime Survey (EUICS). Many findings are highly interesting as for example those concerning corruption. 

There are also high ratings of feeling unsafe among the inhabitants of Greece, in particular those in Athens, in spite of the relatively low rates of their victimisation. This paper focuses on this point, trying to reveal the factors which could explain this 'paradox'.
