Crime, safety and victims' rights – Summary - Fundamental Rights Survey

This summary presents the main insights from
FRA’s second main report based on its Fundamental
Rights Survey. The survey collected data from
around 35,000 people about their experiences,
perceptions and opinions on a range of issues that
are variously encompassed by human rights.
Overview

FRA’s second report focuses on people’s experiences as victims of selected types of crime, including violence, harassment, and property crime. The report also examines how often these crimes are reported to the police; how concerned people are about experiencing crime; and how willing they would be to intervene, report to the police or, if asked, give evidence in court in certain situations.

The results presented offer the first EU-wide crime survey data on the general population’s experiences of crime victimisation that can be used to inform EU and national policy and legislation on crime victims.
