New Cross European Venture - Restorative Justice: Strategies For Change

In collaboration with nine other European countries, Ireland is participating in a new cross European venture entitled Restorative Justice: Strategies for Change. The purpose of the project is twofold;

  • to contribute towards refocusing European criminal justice systems, agencies, policies and practices around restorative principles and processes: and
  • to determine how the Council of Europe Recommendation CM/Rec (2018) concerning restorative justice in criminal matters could be used to support this work.
