    Goals / Remit

    Victim Support Europe is strengthening the rights and services for all victims of crime in Europe and beyond.
    The organisation aims to ensure that every victim in Europe and world-wide can access information and support services in the aftermath of a crime, regardless of where the victim lives or where the crime took place.
    Victim Support Europe also works to ensure that victims are respected, have access to their rights and are able to make their voice heard throughout the criminal justice process.
    National, European, and international actors increasingly turn to Victim Support Europe as they develop their victims’ rights laws, policies, and services. Work continues, on developing new models, measures, and solutions, to improve and implement rights for victims of crime.

    Communication activities

    As of 2020, actions and laws for victims have been well established for many years – we are not starting from scratch. Multiple Directives, Conventions, Recommendations and commitments exist at the EU, Council of Europe and UN level. For the EU, these establish specific, enforceable obligations on Member States to ensure rights and services for victims. Despite progress, these laws are far from being fully implemented. To make victims’ rights a reality, requires a concerted, comprehensive effort. In particular, clear evidence and evaluation is required to demonstrate what the status quo is and what is or is not in place.
    Using this evidence as a baseline will support corrective action, development of relevant policies, laws, best practices etc. It will also empower VSE, victim organisations and the European Commission to advocate for change. This is why, in the next five years, we will continue working towards mainstreaming of victims’ rights into all elements of our work.

    1) Strategic priorities:

    1. PROMOTE IMPLEMENTATION AND STRENGTHENING OF VICTIMS’ RIGHTS
    2. ENSURE VICTIMS ARE RECOGNISED, TREATED WITH RESPECT AND PROTECTED FROM SECONDARY VICTIMISATION
    3. PROMOTE THE RIGHTS, RESILIENCE AND RECOVERY OF VICTIMS, AND STRENGTHEN VICTIM SUPPORT
    4. FACILITATE FULL ACCESS TO SUPPORT FOR VICTIMS WITHIN A NATIONAL FRAMEWORK
    5. WORK TOWARDS VICTIM-CENTRED JUSTICE AND COMPENSATION SYSTEMS
    6. GROW AND STRENGTHEN VS

    The list below only covers meetings held since November 2014 with commissioners, their cabinet members or directors-general at the European Commission; other lobby meetings with lower-level staff may have taken place, but the European Commission doesn't proactively publish information about these meetings. For more information about which commissioner is responsible for which portfolio, check out this link: https://commissioners.ec.europa.eu/index_en All information below comes from European Commission web pages.

    1 July 2024: We have noted that some meetings are appearing in duplicate, ie. some meetings seem to be listed twice. This seems to be because the Commission changes some element of a meeting data after the meeting has first been listed, which causes LobbyFacts to register it as a new meeting. We are investigating further.
