On 25 and 26 May Victim Support Europe and Slachtofferhulp Nederland organised the Annual Victim Support Europe Conference. We welcomed 225 people from all over Europe and the world in the beautiful Muntgebouw in Utrecht. In this unique setting VSE members, practioners, academics, policy makers, lawyers, victims, colleagues and other people interested in victim issues joined together, exchanged practices and committed to future actions.
The different keynote speakers provided inspiring keynotes that shed light on victimisation from different perspectives. The large variety of workshops were thoroughly appreciated by the participants as they focused on specific types of crime, e.g. terrorism, human trafficking and sexual violence and different aspects of victimisation. You can get information on the event and its programme on the #VSE2016 Conference website: www.vse2016.eu
