This project, which took place from 2013 to 2014, provided in-depth training for legal practitioners on EU law on victims of crime. It covered both pre-Lisbon and post-Lisbon instruments, following closely the development of the legislative process at EU level as well as national transposition in the Member States.
The overall aim of the project was to assist victims of crime by contributing to better preparation of the legal practitioners who are called to assist and support them in enforcing their rights, especially in cross-border cases.
The project was implemented by the Academy of European Law (ERA) in partnership with:
- ERA – European Academy of Law (Luxembourg)
- Victim Support Europe (VSE)
- International Victimology Institute (INTERVICT, The Netherlands)
- European Judicial Training Network (EJTN)
