On 30 and 31 May 2017 the Center for the Study of Democracy will hold two capacity building workshops for various legal professions – judges, prosecutors, investigative police, attorneys – as well as social and child protection workers on practices for identification, individual needs assessment and referral of victims of crime.
Prof. Dr. Dobrinka Chankova, professor in criminal procedure, will acquaint the participants with the EU and national legal and institutional framework for protecting victims and the challenges before transposing EU law. Miriana Ilcheva, Research Fellow with the Law Program of the Center, will present the results of the initiative ‘Developing Directive-compatible practices for the identification, assessment and referral of victims’, and the participants will work on a hypothetical on identifying and protecting victims and also they will elaborate on checklists for compatibility of national victim practices with EU law.
