Silvia Taravan

Executive Board Member
Rete Dafne Italia, Italy

Silvia Taravan is the past president of Rete Dafne Italia, the first national crime victim support network. She has been a strong advocate of the development of Rete Dafne, from a local pilot project, started in 2008 in Turin, to an established association in 2015 which later evolved into a national network in 2018. She takes part in the Institutional Coordination Board with the aim of creating a nationwide generic victim support service, chaired by the Ministry of Justice.

She has been working for more than 20 years for a non-profit social Organisation (Associazione Gruppo Abele Onlus) which provides support and rehabilitation services to people with personal, family and social issues. It is in this sector that she has developed a specific interest in victim’s rights, and for the past ten years has dedicated part of her work to Rete Dafne.
