Welcome to Victim Support Europe’s Annual Conference 2023! The conference is one of the largest and most influential events for the global victim support community, bringing together key players working with victims of crime. Annually, between 200 and 250 participants from victim support organisations as well as practitioners, researchers, experts, academics, government officials and criminal justice officials attend the conference.  The event is a future-facing reflection on comprehensive victim support systems, one that brings together different sectors which positively impact victims’ lives.

Protecting Fundamental Freedoms, a Victim’s Perspective

This 2023 conference edition is an opportunity to discuss how victim support communities, law enforcement agents, health professionals, academics, journalists and the private sector can guarantee the promotion and respect of victims’ rights and democracy, and safeguard the rule of law.
