English title:  A new position for the victim? On the strengthening of victims’ rights in the penal process in Norway

A few decades ago, victims of domestic violence were relatively invisible in the penal process in Norway. Today, new penalties are implemented to fight domestic violence, and penalties have been increased. At the same time, there has been a growing critique of the use of legal strategies to fight domestic violence. The most profound critique has been that the penal system does not care for the victim. To protect the victim, victims’ rights in the judicial process have thus been strengthened, e.g., the right to a lawyer; to attain information; to be present in the courtroom; to participate in the proceedings. The current article discusses the extent to which these new rights actually strengthen the position of victims of domestic violence.
