BeneVict (Benefits of full implementation of the Victims’ Rights Directive)

The BeneVict project is focused on developing an evidence base for advancing rights of victims of crimes and influencing the future of victims’ rights in the EU, also enabling a broad pan- EU partnership to raise the challenge of improving victims’ realities across the EU. 

This project intends to gather evidence base regarding the implementation of the Victims’ Rights Directive across the EU and tries to identify the type of evidence that is not being collected. Achieving this objective will serve to inform and influence the forthcoming EU and MSs legislative and policy action in the field of victims’ rights. 

In addition, through a gap analysis, the project will also enable an understanding for the stakeholders, including the EU, Member States, and professionals, regarding the evidence base that is needed (but is not available), to better understand the issues of victimisation, victim support and the implementation of victims’ rights.

The BeneVict project is built as a pan-EU collaborative effort, bringing together experts from 26 countries, to promote collaboration and emphasise that shared values are best reaffirmed through joint initiatives.
