Chapter Summary

This chapter talks about the declaration of basic principles of justice for victims of crime and abuse of power, which is adopted by the General Assembly of the United Nations on 29 November 1985. The General Assembly affirms the necessity of adopting national and international measures in order to secure the universal and effective recognition of, and respect for, the rights of victims of crime and of abuse of power. It also stresses the need to promote progress by all States in their efforts to that end, without prejudice to the rights of suspects or offenders. The chapter finally presents an annex dealing with victims of crime and victims of abuse of power.
