Abstract

This is Part I of the reporting of FAIRCOM, a collaboration of partners, both academics and NGO's, in several member states of the European Union. The aim of FAIRCOM is to contribute to justice for victims of sexual crimes in the European Union by improving the possibilities for obtaining compensation ( https://sexualviolencejustice.eu/ ). This Report part I presents the first results of an investigative study on State Compensation and Offender Compensation in the current five partner countries: Greece, Italy, Latvia, the Netherlands and Spain. In the follow-up to this first Report there will also be a Report part II, as well as a Final Report. FAIRCOM is financed by The EU Justice Program (2014-2020).
