Together with other two organisations committed to address criminal justice issues in Europe, the European Forum for Restorative Justice (EFRJ) is part of the Criminal Justice Platform Europe (CJPE).
Since 2012, CJPE brings together three organizations working in the fields of detention (EuroPris), Probation (Confederation of European Probation, CEP) and Restorative Justice (EFRJ) ‘to reduce re-offending and the impact of crime and to improve methods of working with victims, communities and offenders throughout Europe.’ CJPE’s special focus for 2014 and 2015 is on the protection of victims of crime.

It is a partnership of three network organisations. Each of them – CEP, EuroPris and EFRJ – has a wide membership of organisations from across Europe comprising public authorities, non-governmental organisations, academic institutions and individual experts. The CJPE’s members are equally represented. It is a non-statutory collaboration. The Ministry of Justice in Catalonia supports the CJPE and provides meeting and administration resources in the Centre for Legal Studies, Barcelona.
In October 2011 a workshop was held in Rotterdam for senior representatives of organisations representing probation, prisons, restorative justice and victims. It was decided to create a new method of collaborating. The CJPE was launched in 2012 with a programme of regular meetings to coordinate activities.
