Experiences of Dutch crime victims with damage redress

Experiences of Dutch crime victims with damage redress

(full text available only in Dutch)

Summary

What actions are undertaken by crime victims, except to join in criminal proceedings, to get redress? What are their considerations in whether or not to follow different paths and what are their actual experiences in attempts at obtaining redress for damage? These questions are central in this study. Redress is here understood in the broad sense of obtaining funding from private facilities (private insurance), specific public benefits (guarantee or compensation fund) and compensation in tort from the offender (settlement with help from police or from the Public Prosecution Service, by joining in the criminal proceedings to claim damages, through a civil procedure).
