WORK SUMMARY
This International Conference aims at disseminating the EU Victims Directive (Directive 2012/29/EU) in the field of corporate crime, while presenting the first project findings on corporate victims’ rights and needs. The Conference will also explore the main controversial issues at stake, in an interdisciplinary dialogue with the diverse stakeholders, including victims and corporations. Internationally known keynote speakers will enrich the debate on models of justice capable of addressing victims’ rights and of stimulating corporations towards new victim-sensitive forms of compliance.

The International Conference welcomes the attendance by law enforcement officers, prosecutors and judges, lawyers, scholars, corporations’ legal officers, consumers’ associations, victims’ associations, umbrella organisations on environment protection, food and drug safety, consumers’ protection, victims support services, restorative justice services and all other interested subjects and professionals.
