Honouring Civil Courage – On the situation of victims of communism in Europe
Runtime 2013 to 2015
The goal of the project “Honouring Civil Courage” was to provide a comparative analysis of victims of communist tyranny and to put such an analysis into the context of the political pursuits of EU regarding the protection and compensation of victims of state crimes. In order to do so, it was necessary to analyse the situation of victims of communist state crimes and identify the problems, deficits and potential improvements.
The project was primarily funded by the European Commission, DG Justice.
