Abstract

The article presents findings from a crime victim survey which was conducted in summer 2016 as a household survey in six Tanzanian villages. They reveal that the villagers have been victimised at an unexpected high rate, mostly in relation to the theft of livestock or crops. While 37 % of the households reported having been victimized during the last 12 months, 71 % of all incidents were related to theft. Repeated victimisation is not a rare case. Fear of theft is widespread and has to be understood in the context of food security. Furthermore, the article draws on how the victims deal with the crime events in terms of reporting behavior, conflict mediation and prevention measures. It is a follow-up of Neubacher & Grote on rural crime in developing countries in this journal (No. 3/2016).
