The Roadmap for the Victims’ Rights Directive - open for feedback

The European Commission published a Roadmap for the Evaluation of the Victims’ Rights Directive Directive (Directive 2012/29/EU). It is open for feedback until 30 December 2020. As part of the EU strategy on victims’ rights, this initiative will evaluate the Directive to assess to what extent it has achieved its objectives in terms of its implementation and practical application in EU countries. The new strategy aims to empower victims of crime and to work together for victims' rights. It also promotes an integrated and targeted EU approach to support victims with special needs, such as child victims.
