    Communication from the Commission to the European Parliament, the Council, the Economic and Social Committee and the Committee of the regions Strengthening victims' rights in the EU

    In this Communication the Commission is presenting a package of proposals to reinforce existing national measures, ensuring that victims of crime are given non-discriminatory minimum rights across the EU, irrespective of their nationality or country of residence.

    This package also includes a new mutual recognition mechanism to ensure that victims, or potential victims, who benefit from a protection measure in their Member State of residence, do not lose this protection when crossing borders.
