The project Justice at last – European action for compensation for victims of crime aims to enhance access to compensation for trafficked persons and victims of related crimes. For victims of crime, the right to compensation is recognised and well established in EU legislation. The project aims to identify and analyse remaining barriers to access remedies, as well as needs and best practices on how to overcome such barriers. It further intends to equip professionals with knowledge and skills on claiming and providing assistance for obtaining compensation and to raise awareness amongst professionals, policy makers, service providers and victims of crime in Europe.
