Directive 2012/29/EU establishing minimum standards on the rights, support and protection of victims of crime

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

These 'Guidelines for Corporations' are aimed at providing a practical and specific tool for a better implementation, by corporations and corporate officers (as far as they, too, can be considered an 'intermediate' but very relevant target), of Directive 2012/29/EU, with specific respect to victims of corporate crime and corporate violence. Building on a previous theoretical and empirical research, in the framework of an international research project on 'Victims and Corporations', this chapter provides an overview of the minimum standards on the rights, support and protection of victims of crime established by the Directive, with specific respect to the peculiarities and problems related to corporate violence victimization, i.e. to criminal offences committed by corporations in the course of their legitimate activities, which result in harms to natural persons’ health, integrity or life.
