International Legal Regulation of Compensation for Victims of Criminal Offences

Student: Nikita Stoliarchuk

Supervisor:

Faculty: Faculty of Law

Educational Programme: Jurisprudence (Bachelor)

Year of Graduation: 2021

Compensation for the harm caused by a crime is a serious problem for every State, regardless of the legal system in which it operates. Constitutional and international legal standards of justice presuppose the creation of optimal procedural procedures that allow the victim of a crime to be fully compensated for the harm caused, regardless of whether the perpetrators are identified or not. This is due to the fact that in the absence or insufficiency of the convicted person's material resources, as well as in some other circumstances (such as: the death of the guilty person, his conviction to a sentence of life imprisonment) by the actual non-execution of the decision on a civil claim, as well as in the absence of an indictment, the proper implementation of the right of victims of crimes to compensation for the damage caused, provided for in Article 52 of the Constitution of the Russian Federation, is excluded. Keywords: standards of justice, compensation, victims of crime, protection of the rights of victims, damage caused, improvement of procedures, the procedure for compensation, decisions on compensation, harm from crimes, Great Britain, legislation, torts, civil and criminal proceedings, state compensation for harm from crimes, criminal procedure restitution, the Netherlands, Russia.
