Welcome to the VictimsRights.eu

In order to enhance the implementation of the DIRECTIVE 2012/29/EU OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL of 25 October 2012 establishing minimum standards on the rights, support and protection of victims of crime our project will aim at:

– Increasing the information available for the victims on the legal aid as a means to facilitate the protection of their rights

– To identify common standards to handle victim of crime cases in order to have a just compensation

– Reinforcing the capacities of practitioners in dealing with victims, through the implementation of a training course

– Addressing the main needs of the victims of crimes for a reinforced protection of their rights during the trial, as stated among others by the point 2.3.4 of the Stockholm Programme

– Facilitating the information of those categories of citizens less aware of their rights, notably the population of rural areas, through the production and delivery of a set of communication tools.

– Enhanced European judicial and security culture among law enforcement agencies, practitioners, members of NGO and associations of victims of crimes.

– Reinforcement / cross fertilization among EU universities, NGOs and police departments in the subject of enhancing protection of rights of victims of crime.
