The main concept of FAIR is to reach persons suspected or accused of crime and empower them with knowledge of their rights enshrined in the EU Directives - of Directive 2013/48/EU, ; Directive 2010/64/EU; Directive 2012/13/EU;Directive (EU) 2016/343; Directive (EU) 2016/800; Directive (EU) 2016/1919, which establish minimum standards for procedural rights in criminal proceedings. One of the main concepts is to develop multilingual tool to be used in detention centres.
The problem of ensuring fair trial to persons suspected or accused of crime in the European Union through establishing minimum standards for their rights in the course of the criminal proceedings has become a serious challenge due to the significant differences in the national legal frameworks of the Member States.The FAIR project comes to overcome this issue by enhancing their rights, as well as by contributing to the practical implementation of several European Directives, which establish the minimum standards for procedural rights in criminal proceedings. This is why the main concept of FAIR is to reach persons suspected or accused of crime and empower them with knowledge of their rights enshrined in the EU Directives by providing information in different languages and manners using innovative technological approach.
The FAIR project is coordinated by the Vienna Center for Social Security (VICESS), Austria. The partnership includes Law and Internet Foundation (Bulgaria), Minority Rights Group Europe(Hungary) and the Center for Security Studies (Greece).
The project is implemented with the support of Justice Programme (2014-2020) of the European Commission under Grant Agreement 802040.
