The European Forum for Restorative Justice is organising an online Winter Academy,  a high-quality learning opportunity for those interested in getting involved  in restorative justice, implementing restorative justice programmes or want to get a systematic introduction to the topic. The event will consist of two interactive introductory courses (Introduction to Restorative Justice and Introduction to Restorative Responses to Serious Harm) and three special Insight Talks on essential questions and ideas about the restorative justice and its high-quality and innovative application.  Additionally there will be a Q&A ('question and answer') session organised linked to the Insight Talks, which provides an opportunity to discuss ideas and questions with the presenters and other participants of the Winter Academy. The courses and the Insight Talks will be delivered by EFRJ Registered Qualified Trainers. The 2020 Winter Academy will take place online.
