One of the worst obstacles that victims of crime still face across Europe is the lack of information available to them, which may lead to a general unawareness on how to exercise their rights.
Based on this concern the Portuguese Association for Victim Support (APAV) is now developing the Project Infovictims, which aims to contribute to increase the information to victims of crime about the criminal justice system, their rights and ways to exercise them.
Within this Project, APAV will promote the Seminar Infovictims - The Right of Victims of Crime to Information, September 23rd and 24th, at the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation in Lisbon.
The Seminar will focus on cross-cutting issues in the field of victims rights, with special emphasis on the right to information and the challenges it brings up to the judicial and police authorities, at a national and European level.
