The project focuses on the fundamentals of redress for victims of crime through criminal proceedings. The victims right to compensation in criminal proceedings represents both individual interests and public interests. The question rises whether these interests influence the nature of the victims right to compensation to be effectuated via criminal proceedings and if so, how and with what outcome. These questions will be approached from a civil law perspective on the one hand and a criminal law perspective on the other hand.
