Bridging Voices: V-Europe at EUCVT and AVT Webinar on Barcelona Attack Victims


In an insightful webinar hosted by the EUCVT (EU Center of Expertise for Victims of Terrorism) and AVT (Asociación de Víctimas del Terrorismo), V-Europe played a crucial role in amplifying the voices of those affected by the Barcelona attack. Mathias Van de Vijver, resource coordinator of V-Europe, provided interpretation for a Flemish couple who tragically lost their daughter in the 2017 attack.

Through Mathias's interpretation from Dutch to English, the couple's emotional testimony reached a global audience of professionals dedicated to supporting victims of terrorism. Their story underscored the ongoing challenges faced by survivors and highlighted the importance of improving support systems for victims and their families.

Amidst a panel of legal experts, the couple's testimony stood out as a poignant reminder of the human toll of terrorism and the need for compassionate and effective responses. V-Europe's participation in the webinar exemplifies their commitment to advocating for the rights and well-being of victims, providing not only a platform for their voices but also essential support in their journey towards healing and justice.

As we reflect on the impact of this webinar, let us reaffirm our collective commitment to building a more inclusive and supportive environment for victims of terrorism. Through continued dialogue, advocacy, and action, we can work towards a future where the voices of victims are heard, honored, and empowered.
