Celebrating our past.
Creating hope for the future.

Weisser Ring and Victim Support Europe are delighted to welcome you to the Victim Support Europe 2020 Annual Conference and General Meeting – Celebrating our past. Creating hope for the future. The Conference will take place at H4 Conference Center in Berlin, Germany, on the 13-14 of May 2020, followed by the General Meeting.

The Conference is a major international event bringing together the key players working with victims of crime. Between 200 and 250 participants from victim support organisations as well as practitioners, researchers, experts, academics, government officials and criminal Justice officials attend annually.

This year’s edition “Celebrating our past. Creating hope for the future.” is a celebration of the work the victim support community of the EU has done over the last 30 years. From providing administrative, legal, psychological support to advocating for victims’ rights and policies, Victim Support Europe’s members have made enormous strides in the advancement of victims’ wellbeing across Europe. The community has many successes in 30 years — however, in the current political climate, the protection and promotion of victims’ rights is more essential than ever. Together, we can learn from the past and create a positive, actionable vision for the comprehensive victim support system in Europe: today, tomorrow and 30 years from now.
