Statement by LSI on the protection of victims' rights in Europe

LSI Statement EU Victim Rights Day 2023


La Strada International (LSI) has released a statement on the occasion of the EU Victims' Rights Day on 22 February with 12 recommendations to guarantee the effective protection of victims' rights in Europe. While LSI welcomes the current negotiations on new and existing EU legislation to promote victims' rights, it criticises the lack of implementation of EU law and victim protection. LSI therefore calls on, among others, the members of the European Council and the European Parliament to propose clear and binding measures to strengthen victims' rights. LSI also calls for clear guidelines and the obligation of EU member states to enforce EU law and ensure that victims' rights are effectively applied in practice.
