What future for victims’ rights?

On 6 November, FRA contributed to a High Level Experts’ Meeting, organised by the European Commission on ‘What future for victims’ rights?’

On the basis of the its reports on justice for victims of violent crimes, FRA suggested ways forward in allowing victims to have an appropriate role in criminal proceedings, including more effective means of communicating to victims their rights and opportunities to participate in the proceedings, stepping up investments in establishing a comprehensive and robust structure of support organisations and improving cooperation between public authorities and civil society actors.
