The JUSTICIA European Rights Network
Since 2012 the ICCL has received funding from the European Commission to led a distinct trans-European entity called the JUSTICIA European Rights Network, whose thematic focus is on EU Criminal Justice, in particular procedural rights and the rights of victims of crime.

The JUSTICIA Network endeavours to strengthen the domestic impact of the work of its network member organisations in the area of EU justice. This multi-faceted approach will equip partner organisations more effectively, enabling them to promote the observance of EU standards on procedural rights and the rights of victims of crime, and to contribute to an all rights-based progressive reform, whilst strengthening their existing working relationships with their European counterparts.
Founded on the shared principle that EU standards cannot be effectively promoted through a single-country focus, and that such promotion requires advocate cooperation, the JUSTICIA network consists of 11 network member organisations at present: the Irish Council for Civil Liberties (ICCL), Open Society Justice Initiative (Hungary), Statewatch (UK), the Latvian Centre for Human Rights, the Human Rights Monitoring Institute (Lithuania), the Bulgarian Helsinki Committee, the League of Human Rights (Czech Republic), the Hungarian Civil Liberties Union, the Helsinki Foundation for Human Rights (Poland), the European Center for Human and Constitutional Rights (Germany), and the Greek Helsinki Monitor . However, there is scope for the expansion of membership to areas geographically under-represented (Southern Europe, in particular).
The JUSTICIA Network is financially supported by the Criminal Justice Programme of the European Union.
