The priorities of the project Outstanding problems of restorative justice, perspective solutions within the Euroepan Union. Research on „The regulation on the security measures for safety of society within European Union” (TM 2012/13/EK) are
- supporting victims of crime, and
- networking and exchange of best practice among practitioners, including on procedural rights and restorative justice.
The overall objective of the project is to execute and promote knowledge on the recent developments in the European Union. The adoption of the Lisbon Treaty and the abolishment of the third pillar consequently have brought significant changes in the criminal law of each EU Member State.
PROVIDUS task within this project was to carry out the research Reglamentation of social safety operational measures in European Union and research Development of compensation mechanisms in Latvia.
The goal of the research: to study three systems of the EU Member States (possible Estonia, Denmark, Sweden) and propose specific recommendations for improvement of national system of state where research will be carried out (Latvia) as well as for information to other EU states where research results would be useful. The research aims to provide specific indicators for developing systems of the respective states where the research will be carried out, as well as for utilization of other Member States across the EU. Right now Latvia does not have a possibility to apply measures for persons who potentially can threaten the public in general or specific person (e.g. domestic violence). The discussion on the European Protection Order showed that Latvia is only one of several Member States (as well as Poland, Belgium, Czech Republic) that does not have such possibility. Thus, there is clear necessity for evaluating legislation of other Member States in the view of assisting national systems where the regulation on the security measures for safety of society does not exist. Additionally, the study visits and conference are necessary in order to receive extensive knowledge from foreign lecturers and participants so to enable policy makers to prepare most effective legislation on the application of protection measures.
