Spotlight on Victims and Survivors

Spotlight on Victims and Survivors news

2024 is a significant year. It marks the 20th anniversary of the European Remembrance Day for Victims of Terrorism, which was first created in memory of those who lost their lives in the 2004 Madrid train bombings. The Remembrance Day is now a day which commemorates and pays respect to all those that have suffered or lost their lives as a result of terrorism. 

Thanks to the work of victims associations and networks, such as the RAN Victims/ Survivors of Terrorism (VoT) Working Group, the role of victims/ survivors – both those with first-hand experience of a terror attack and those who have lost a loved one – is now well understood – whether that is to simply share their personal testimonies of their experiences of terrorism, and the impact it has had upon them, their families and their lives, or to actively participate in P/CVE interventions.
