Victim Protection in Criminal Proceedings at European Level
Keywords:victims, rights, protection, crime, directive
AbstractThe protection of victims of crime is a priority, both in the European Union and in the Member States. Crime is, on the one hand, a detriment to society and, on the other, a violation of the individual rights of victims, so that they must first be recognized and then treated by the judicial authorities with respect, attention and professionalism, without discrimination. This study aims to present in a non-exhaustive way the regulation of victims' rights, including its evolution, and the protection of criminal proceedings, emphasizing the role of victims in criminal proceedings and the standards pursued by the Union in this area, including their consolidation in the coming years.
