Collection of research on efficiency and effectiveness of RJ

In 2017, the working plan of the EFRJ will deal with identifying efficient and effective ways to provide RJ services across Europe. This is in line with the regulations provided by the EU Victims Directive, requesting all Member States to provide minimum safe quality standards for all victims of crime.

With this call, we would like to ask you to identify relevant literature on the efficiency and effectiveness of RJ, evaluation reports on RJ services and relevant statistical data on RJ/mediation practices and provide a short 300 words summary, especially if these are provided in the national language.

We kindly ask you to provide this information via email ([email protected]), subject line ‘Research on efficiency and effectiveness of RJ’ by 1 June 2017.

Also, in line with the regular working plan of the EFRJ to further establish RJ across Europe, we kindly ask you to fill in the Survey on Restorative Practices for the research project ‘More Humane Approaches to Addressing the Harm of Criminal Behaviour’ (postponed deadline: 7 April) and to share information on RJ approaches implemented in your country in cases of elder abuse and in cases of road traffic accidents (more info here) for two other projects the EFRJ is involved in.

And if you are a member of the EFRJ, apply now to join our new Working Group on values and standards in RJ practices! If you wish to become a member, please click here to find all information.
