EUCPN: High-risk victim groups: Preventing repeat and secondary victimisation

Two papers make up the EUCPN toolbox on high-risk victim groups (available in English, French, German and Czech):

  • Preventing repeat and secondary victimisation: examines which groups of people can be considered as high-risk victim groups due to their personal susceptibility characteristics and discusses how the victim-centred approach as well as multi-agency cooperation can play a role in preventing secondary victimisation. Furthermore, it focuses on breaking the cycle of repeat victimisation by encouraging victims’ reporting behaviours, referring them successfully to other support services and assisting them during a potential court trial.
  • ECPA: an overview of the participants of the 2022 European Crime Prevention Award.
