Conference 'Expanding the restorative imagination: Restorative justice between realities and visions in Europe and beyond'



Thursday 14th of June 2018 - Saturday 16th of June 2018


Restorative justice remains today the most concrete vision of challenging current penal developments and offering alternatives to the repressive and exclusionary approaches used in addressing current societal challenges. This vision is manifested in a desire to reform both penal and social systems in their inner structures, in favor of practices that are more adequate to the ideals and principles of modern democracies and to human rights.

To live up to this vision and address current penal and social challenges, the restorative movement has to constantly reimagine itself, and the EFRJ conference intends to be the international forum for doing that. In 2018 Europe will also celebrate the 50th anniversary of the civil rights movements and therefore we would like to honor that important heritage in this conference.

The conference will explore at depth the realities and visions of restorative justice in the European penal and social landscapes, through three core themes: 1. Restorative intersections with the criminal justice system; 2.Restorative juvenile justice realities and visions; 3. Reimagining restorative justice as a social movement

The conference will be hosted by the Albanian Foundation for Conflict Resolution, one of the oldest members of the EFRJ.
