All members of the European Forum for Restorative Justice are expected to have read and agreed on the mission and aims of the organisation and comply to its values as a daily practice.

Join/ renew your organisational membership

Organisational members are governmental departments, institutions, universities or organisations working at the local, regional, national or international level to implement or promote services, research, training or lobbying activities in the field of restorative justice and related areas. The benefits of becoming an organisational member include having more visibility at the European level. At the same time the organisation will have priority over hosting an event of the EFRJ, will get special discounts for up to 5 members of their staff to join events, will be contacted for partnerships in projects, will have the right to 3 votes at the Annual General Meeting.

Organisational members must appoint a representative from within their organisation: for this, fill in the "individual profile" in the form and provide the details of the contact person. 

Membership fees are payable for the period between 1 January and 31 December of any year. It is preferable that renewals are done before 15 May. This allows us to present the actual list of members to the Annual General Meeting (due in June each year). There is no difference in membership fee for full and associate members.

Please note that we have slightly changed our membership fees from this year. Please see details below.

Membership fees (applicable from 1 January 2020) 

In order to aim for a more fair contribution system, the membership fees are adjusted from 2020 on. The new system reflects the economical status of the European countries. As equal access is a very important element of the core philosophy of the EFRJ, the membership fee varies according to the country’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) per capita and, in case of organisational members, to the fact they are governmental or non-governmental organisations. According to GDP per capita, a distinction is made for the GDP index higher than 100, or lower than 100 (where 100 represents the European GDP average). The data from the last available year to determine the fee can be found on Eurostat* **. If an organisational member includes networks in different countries, the GDP will be calculated as for the organisation’s headquarters. Members can contact the EFRJ Secretariat in case they have trouble paying the membership fees for reasons that are not foreseen in the GDP table, or if they have doubts about the fee to be paid (e.g. if your country is not in the table from Eurostat). 

According to decision made by the 2019 Annual General Meeting of the EFRJ (Bilbao - Spain, 4 June 2019) the following membership fees are applicable from 2020 on:
