What are the EFRJ Committees and Working Groups?

Committees are groups of members appointed for a longstanding activity of the EFRJ, such as the Editorial Committee, the Training Committee, the Values and Standards Committee and the Research Committee.

Working Groups are members who gather together for a specific task in a limited timeframe and on specific themes relevant for the field, as identified by some of our members (e.g. Restorative Cities, Violent Extremism Restorative Schools, Environmental Restorative Justice, and Gender-Based Violence).

Depending on the Committee/ Working Group, the number of members varies (5-12 members) and they are appointed for a 2 years term (renewable). Individual members can be involved in maximum 2 Committees/ Working Groups; organisational members can delegate different persons without limits. The Chair of a Committee/Working Group is chosen among and by its members.
