This European Project constitutes an “action” which tackles procedural protection of the minor victim, his/her access to the process and his/her statute from two specific points of view. Firstly, there is the statute of the victim in the criminal process (2001/ JAI) and its implementation in Spain. Secondly, the widening of mutual knowledge among the above mentioned countries and their specificities from the different perspectives which are contained in the European Directive in relation to the victim: the right of access to process; the statement as a witness; reference to mediation, etc.). Its approachment, the development of the principle of mutual recognition and the development of good-practice guidelines as a European referent are thus favoured. Since 2002, when it was granted, the following have been developed: an International Seminar in Girona, which also served to launch the action, and where more than 30 national and international jurists (judges, prosecutors and lawyers, as well as jurists with a university background) studied the protection of victims in Spain and Italy from the different highlighted perspectives. On November 30th, December 1st and December 2nd, a Second International Seminar will be held in Milan, where different aspects regarding the protection of victims will be studied in depth with an eye on the International Congress which will take place on April 19th to April 21st in Cáceres and where over a hundred jurists of different origins: professional (University, Judiciary, Proscecution, Attorney) as well as geographical (different European and American countries), are expected. After its holding, and starting from the investigations and activities developed, the speeches and communications presented, and the participations carried out, the preparation of the publication of a manual related to the basic guidelines of good-practice and experience will start, with the aim to guarantee the transference of knowledge and practice among the direct and indirect beneficiaries of the action, all of which, and together with the eventual publication of another collective book, will fullfil the development of this project.
