Protection of victims of terrorist acts (2018)
The effects of terrorism on the victims and their close family members require national implementation of an efficient protection policy, financial assistance and compensation for victims, including, in an appropriate manner, the societal recognition of the suffering of victims alongside a duty to remember.
Bearing this objective in mind, the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe adopted, on 19 May 2017, its revised Guidelines on the protection of victims of terrorist acts. They appear in this publication together with the Guidelines on human rights and the fight against terrorism (11 July 2002) as well as the proceedings of the High-Level Seminar on this issue, organised by the Council of Europe (13-14 June 2005).
