    The Indian Society of Victimology (ISV) was established in August 1992 and was formally inaugurated by the eminent jurist Hon’ble Mr. Justice V.R.Krishna Iyer, Former Judge of the Supreme Court of India, in September 1992 through the efforts of the then Head of the Department Prof. K.Chockalingam in the University of Madras. The ISV was established with the objective of advocating the cause of victims of crime and abuse of power in India and to some extent it has been realized. As of today, it has about 400 members.
