  • Abstract

Informations and abstract


The observation of some recent cases concerning the victims of the so called "enterprises crimes" - such as the ThyssenKrupp and the Eternit ones in Turin, or the one occurred at ILVA establishment in Taranto - gives the opportunity to formulate some wider remarks in order the necessity to adopt a clear sociological point of view looking at origins and consequences of victimization processes. It means to promote a sociological attention for all those factors at the ground of victimization that roots in society, making not only some social actors more fragile to different forms of crimes and iniquity but also much more difficult to be recognized by social context and institutions in their condition. Nowadays we need a sociology "for" the victims, it means able to put concrete attention to their suffering and to promote effective actions to respond to their violated rights and needs in all contexts.
