Project Overview

This project involved an examination of the existing mechanisms for compensating victims of crime for harm, loss or damage suffered as the result of that crime. The project considered the adequacy of these mechanisms and made proposals for any changes were necessary or desirable. The project also considered the recommendations relating to victims’ compensation in the Justice and Electoral Committee’s report, Inquiry into Victims’ Rights.
