Victims’ Rights in Restorative and Criminal Justice
The IARS International Institute
About the course
This half-day face to face course is designed to equip professionals with the tools and knowledge on victims' rights in restorative and criminal justice and aims to ensure that practices conform with the new EU Victims' Directive 2012/29/EU establishing minimum standards on the rights, support and protection of victims of crime. Additionally, there will be a focus on the Directive's restorative justice requirements and on increasing knowledge on how to treat and interact with victims in the criminal justice process. The programme builds on a pilot that IARS delivered over 60 times in five different countries involving 1,131 individuals and 383 organisations.
The IARS International Institute has a charitable mission to give everyone a chance to forge a safer, fairer and more inclusive society. We achieve our charitable aims by producing evidence-based solutions to current social problems, sharing best practice and by supporting young people and the community to shape decision making.
