Summer School on child-friendly RJ
  We are busy preparing for our Summer School on "Child-Friendly Restorative Justice" which will be take place in Gdansk, Poland on 22-26 July. Trainers Bie Vansereven (Belgium) and Belinda Hopkins (United Kingdom) will introduce good practices to use RJ in cases involving children and adolescents.

RJ conference & Summer School in Russia

RJ was in the focus in Moscow last week. Philosophy, law, sociology and psychology experts explored ways to advance RJ approaches in Russia. During the conference “Transdisciplinary Paradigm of Restorative Justice” activists from all over the country shared their experiences. The event was followed by a Summer School. Participants evaluated RJ practices in the country and factors that might hinder the application of RJ. To learn more about their findings, contact Olga Kiseleva, member of the EFRJ editorial committee. The photos of the events are on Facebook.

New resource guide on victims and RJ

Alberta Restorative Justice Association published a resource guide Serving Crime Victims Through Restorative Justice: A Resource Guide for Leaders and Practitioners. You can download it for free! The guide describes a research done in Alberta (Canada) and explores how these findings can inform the ways in which RJ programs and practices may be shaped with care and attention to the needs of crime victims.

Moment of inspiration


The new Netflix series When They See Us concerns the true story of the Central Park Five. In 1989, five black teenage boys were accused of rape and homicide in Central Park, NYC. They were interrogated for days and forced to plea guilty, although their involvement was not proven. After 10 years of unjustified imprisonment, we could question what the potential of RJ could be in cases of miscarriage of justice.
