Every two years, the European Forum for Restorative Justice (EFRJ) organises a Summer School in a different location in Europe and on a different theme.
The EFRJ Summer School aims at bringing together practitioners, researchers, trainers and other professionals interested in RJ from across Europe and beyond to exchange and discuss practices, ideas, challenges, projects in the field of RJ.
This time, focus was on both, young victims and offenders, to identify appropriate restorative responses to conflict and crime involving this specific vulnerable group.

A CONVERSATION is a film based on a theatre performance of a real case where two families meet in the presence of a facilitator, the parents of a young woman who was raped and murdered and the family of the offender.
The play is an important contribution to the ongoing discourse on restorative justice and it aims at raising awareness on the possibility to use dialogue and focus on the feelings of people in conflict, even in cases of serious crimes.
The film has been screened almost 150 times since its release, reaching about 7000 people!
Watch the trailer.
The full film is available to European Forum for Restorative Justice members only.
Message by John McDonald (Australia)
This conference aimed to broaden the scope of restorative justice, and tried to look "beyond" its application to the criminal justice system. Organisers, speakers from academia, policy and practice and other key persons in restorative justice reflect on this new perspective in short interviews.
Watch the short film.
