COST Action A21
RESTORATIVE JUSTICE DEVELOPMENTS IN EUROPE
Restorative Justice Research in Europe: Outcomes and Challenges
22-24 November 2006, University of Warsaw
The conference is structured along the four domains on which the COST Action has worked during four years:
Ø Evaluative research on restorative justice practices
Ø Policy oriented research on restorative justice
Ø Restorative justice theory
Ø Restorative justice, violent conflicts and mass victimization.
These domains will successively be discussed in blocks of each half a day on Thursday and Friday. In the first part of each block, the respective Working Groups of the COST Action will present their findings centered around the sub-domains they dealt with.
The second part of each block gives room to paper presentations on related restorative justice research by non COST- members.
Each block will be concluded by an external speaker.
