Welcome to the website of the project "Protecting Victims’ Rights in the EU: the theory and practice of diversity of treatment during the criminal trial"

The website has been designed in the framework of the European Commission DG Justice project JUST/2011/JPEN/AG/2919, which is implemented by the Centre for European Constitutional Law – Themistokles and Dimitris Tsatsos Foundation, in collaboration with the Institute for Advanced Legal Studies, School of Advanced Study, University of London.

Our goal is to present in a single space a comparative analysis of the legal and institutional framework in force in the EU member states on the transposition and implementation of Directive 2012/29/EU, as well as an assessment of what works, what does not work and why, culminating in the presentation of concrete policy recommendations on how to best implement the Directive.

The site is addressed to policy makers at national level, officials at EU level, legal and judicial practitioners, academic scholars, researchers, research institutions, victims’ protection Institutions.
