Abstract:The organization Slachtoffer in Beeld (Victim in Focus) organizes victim offender mediations. This research focuses on determining crime seriousness in the context of victim-offender mediation. The present study examines whether a code scheme based on the various subjective and objective dimensions can be used to form a valid and reliable method to determine the observed seriousness of crimes. This has been done by analyzing whether this method results to the same rank order of seriousness of crimes as a second method does, which is based on criminal data and considered to be a reasonable objective measure of crime seriousness. This is interesting because the new developed method could be more efficient and user friendly than the just described second method. Secondly, it has been investigated how the seriousness of crimes is distributed at the organization Victim in Focus.
