With financial support from the Criminal Justice Programme of the European Union


PROVIDUS task within this project was to carry out the research Development of compensation mechanisms in Latvia and the research Reglamentation of social safety operational measures in European Union.

The activity aims at by using the best practices and experiences of other EU Member States to substantially improve systems on rights of victims within the states where the research will be carried out to claim the compensations in criminal proceedings as the activity will be implemented in several EU Member States. The research is closely connected to the priorities set up by Stockholm program. In Baltic States there are no extensive researches carried out about legislation of other EU Member States on the compensation of victims as the system of compensation during criminal proceedings is relatively new (2006). For example in Latvia, availability for victims to receive compensation varies in each case. The research will be the basis for improving regulation on compensation of victims within states where certain system of compensation during criminal proceedings hasn’t established.
