The Center for Security Studies (KE.ME.A.) of the Ministry of Citizen Protection, organized a webinar in the context of the implementation of the EU-funded research Project FAIR: Enhancing the FAIR Trial for people suspected or accused of crimes.
The purpose of the Webinar was to present: a) the Best Practices Handbook, which is addressed to police officers, prosecutors, judges and lawyers, and is the result of field research carried out in the four partner countries and b) the FAIR Tool (FAIR app), which provides basic legal information not only to law enforcement authorities but also to suspects or accused of a crime as well as to their relatives.
The Webinar was held on June 30th, 2020, with the participation of more than 25 Experts from Law Enforcement Authorities, Local Government bodies and the Civil Society as well as lawyers with extensive experience in protecting the rights of suspects or accused.
Participants’ vivid contributions in the Webinar’s discussions as well as the issues raised and the topics analyzed resulted in the extension of its original duration by one additional hour; thereby stressing the significance of the project and the value of its subject matter.
The FAIR Project is transnational and the partnership includes:
VIENNA CENTER FOR SOCIETAL SECURITY - Project Coordinator - Austria

The aim of the FAIR Project is to promote the right to a fair trial of persons suspected or accused of a crime, by strengthening the practical application of European Directives in related matters.
