EFRJ Conference 2016- Call for papers

The EFRJ invites practitioners, researchers, legal professionals, policy makers and activists to submit proposals for presenting during the parallel workshop sessions.

The programme is organized around six main themes. Please consider those first when submitting your abstracts. We welcome presentations looking at traditional RJ practices within the criminal justice system but also beyond and including other methods to encourage RJ interventions. Additional presentations on other themes of relevance for RJ based on innovative practices, recent research or currently finished projects and suggestions for further workshop themes (and formats) are also welcomed.
