On 2 June 2017, about 60 participants attended the seminar ‘Restorative Justice in Intercultural Conflicts‘ organised by the European Forum for Restorative Justice (EFRJ) in cooperation with the Servicebureau for Victim-Offender Mediation and Conflict Settlement (Cologne, Germany) and DBH e.V. – Association für Social Work, Criminal Law and Criminal Policy. The seminar took place in the occasion of the Annual General Meeting where members of the EFRJ gathered together to approve past and future strategies of the organisation.
This one-day seminar included keynote presentations, interactive sessions and moderated panel discussions with interesting speakers from Germany and not only! Among others, speakers will reflect on the use of mediation in involving refugees, present local projects of conflict resolution in intercultural settings, compare mediation practices across Europe (mostly, Germany, England, Norway) and further disseminate the findings of our recently concluded project ALTERNATIVE on restorative justice in intercultural settings.
