The European Forum for Restorative Justice organises every second year an international conference, hosted by one if its member organisations. Our conferences provide cutting edge content, various formats of contributions from different perspectives such as practice, research, policy, arts, activism and a forum for professional exchange and development of partnerships. We also celebrate the European Restorative Justice Award during our conferences and we create opportunities to get in contact with local experts and initiatives.
