One of the aims of the project is to increase the information available for the victims on the legal aid as a means to facilitate the protection of their rights

In February 2013, the Center for public policy PROVIDUS (PROVIDUS), together with partners from 3 EU Member States (Poland, Italy, Bulgaria), started a project “Improving Protection of Victim’s Rights: Access to Legal Aid”, supported by the European Commission. Project is led by Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznan, Poland.

During 18 months project will:

  • increase the information available for the victims on the legal aid as a means to facilitate the protection of their rights
  • identify common standards to handle victim of crime cases in order to have a just compensation
  • reinforce the capacities of practitioners in dealing with victims, through the implementation of a training course
  • facilitate the information of those categories of citizens less aware of their rights, notably the population of rural areas, through the production and delivery of a set of communication tools.
