To improve the dissemination and accessibility to special areas and to appliactions of restorative justice and to make existing research and practice materials more readable, accessible and widely used the European Forum for Restorative Justice (EFRJ) produces  publications (briefs) on various topics.  These documents are developed with the support of its members and committees  and working groups. It is our objective to provide useful resources for our membership with the contents of these publications.  They are designed to be disseminated, in their printed version, in different occasions such as meetings, project or policy events, awareness raising initiatives. 

We tailor the briefs to different kind of audiences: 

  • a) Research briefs, that summarises research reports written by the EFRJ and others aiming at disseminating research outcomes;
  • b) Thematic briefs, thematic summaries on different topics and the related RJ approaches;
  • c) Policy briefs, useful for policy makers and or to raise awareness in policy settings;
  • d) Infographics, aimed for dissemination to the general public on core elements of restorative justice
