La Strada International launched, together with the KOK and other partner organizations, the Justice at Last project - European Action for Compensation of Victims of Crime. The aim of the project is to identify and analyze both the existing obstacles to the enforcement of compensation claims, as well as needs and best practices for overcoming these obstacles. Professionals should be provided with the knowledge and skills to help those affected enforcing their rights to compensation. In addition, awareness of professionals, policy-makers, counselors and victims of crime in Europe, for the most effective mechanisms for victim protection, as well as access to compensation should be increased.
Now, two working papers have been published: Legal Assessment: Compensation Practices and Paper Cooperation on access to compensation in cross border-context.
