As part of the IJJO’s technical assistance to the EUROsociAL II programme, which is financed by the European Union, two guidelines to implement the 'Manual de Herramientas de Justicia Restaurativa' (Toolkit on Restorative Justice) have been created. On one side, there is a ‘Guía Metodológica de Aplicación de Prácticas y Justicia Restaurativa en el marco de las sanciones establecidas en el Sistema de Responsabilidad Penal Adolescente (SRPA)’ (Methodological Guideline that aims to include restorative practices into the sanctions that the Criminal Justice System for Adolescents can implement). On the other side, the ‘Guía para la Resolución Alterna de Conflictos y Mediación en el Ámbito Escolar y Comunitario desde los principios de la Justicia Restaurativa’ (Guideline for the Alternative Resolution of Conflicts and Mediation in the School and Community Environment) was also established. These two guidelines cover both the legal and the educational spheres, and they aim to increase the use of restaurative practices and, in this way, offer a greater variety of alternatives for conflict resolution.
