AbstractOne of the greatest tests of the quality of our justice systems is how well we treat our victims - appropriate treatment is a demonstration of our societies' solidarity with each individual victim and recognition that such treatment is essential to the moral integrity of society. It is therefore crucial not only to combat and prevent crime, but also to properly support and protect individuals who do fall victim to crime. Both legislative and practical measures have been put in place to provide an adequate level for the protection of victim's rights throughout the EU, and in accordance with international provisions.
