On 19 November 2018, the EFRJ will open this international RJ week with the launch event of the European Restorative Justice Policy Network (ERJPN). The event will bring together representatives of the ministries working in RJ, penal mediation and/or criminal justice legislation from all European member states.
The aim is to share experiences, reforms, best practices and challenges in member states; to make European policy makers aware of new research outcomes, innovative practices and international policy matters regarding RJ; to learn about needs and how the EFRJ could further develop (policy) development; and to provide a forum for discussion.
On 20 November morning the group will visit the Belgian mediation service Mediante, directed by Antonio Buonatesta, one of the EFRJ founders and still active member of the EFRJ, who will present the work of the organisation and the application of RJ in serious crime.
Only invited guests can participate to the event. If you want to know more, please contact our colleague Laura Hein.
