Each March, two international days question the potential of restorative justice in serious harms, where crimes are the understandable manifestation of systemic issues and sufferings in our societies.
8 March celebrates the International Women Day marking the achievements of the women’s rights movement. In 2021, special attention will be given to the role of women in leadership roles as innovators and community organisers as well as in the care roles as health workers and caregivers during the covid-19 pandemic.
On 8 March 2021 (4 - 6 pm CET), several members of the Working Group on Gender-Based Violence will take part in an online panel discussion. The event is open to a wider public of professionals working on restorative justice, criminal justice, victim support, community work, and others interested in these topics.
The following members of the EFRJ Working Group on Gender-Based Violence and Restorative Justice will present during this webinar:
- Valentina Bonini (Italy) - Exclusion criteria in the law to access restorative justice in cases of violence against women.
- Linda Millington & Janet Clark (UK) – A facilitator’s practical experience on restorative justice with cases of sexual and domestic abuse.
