IARS Publication: ‘A Victim-led Criminal Justice System’

A Victim-led Criminal Justice System: Addressing the paradox was published by IARS in November 2014.

This timely and ground-breaking collection of peer-reviewed articles contributes to current national and international debates about the position of victims in the criminal justice system. Following fierce campaigning by victims’ groups, the international community has entered into a debate that aims to move the victim from the margins to the centre of the criminal justice system. For first time restorative justice is explicitly regulated at EU legal level as new Victims’ Directive aims to establish a base line for its safe implementation across members’ states.
