Towards setting access to justice indicators for victims

Experts will come together at the FRA to discuss indicators and access to justice with respect to rights of victims of crime.

Experts will come together at the FRA to discuss indicators and access to justice with respect to rights of victims of crime. The discussions will address how access to justice for victims can be captured with the use of indicators. Or, can concepts such as encouragement to report crime, timely and full participation in court proceedings and compensation of victims of crime be encapsulated systematically through indicators? For the Agency, this meeting merges victims' rights, an area where FRA research is presently ongoing and reflected in a number of projects, with that of indicators. Ideally, at the end of the meeting the FRA will have a set of indicators, which could be applied and tested in practice in order to assess and develop such indicators further.
