Bons delinquentes, acordai!

Interessantes as conclusões do Sr. Presidente da Sociedade Portuguesa de Criminologia, Prof. Dr. Cândido da Agra, reportando-se a um seu estudo empírico sobre os fenómenos da insegurança, da delinquência nas estradas e da droga - a ler aqui.

Medo, fuga e angústia parecem ser qualificativos da síndrome da 'portuguesidade'.

Revi as palavras de José Gil, naquele seu fantástico livro 'Portugal, Hoje - O Medo de Existir'.

Mas é na esperança do 'bom delinquente' que os meus olhos se fixaram - porque falta acordar 'a nossa razão'.

Problem-solving justice

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket



In recent months, the Center for Court Innovation has been exploring a new frontier: going to scale with the concept of problem-solving justice.

The basic idea is to move the problem-solving approach from the margins of the justice system into the mainstream, spreading the principles and practices—informed decision-making, judicial monitoring, community engagement, a focus on results, etc.—that have proven to be effective in drug courts, community courts, and other problem-solving courts beyond specialized courtrooms.

As part of this effort, the Center has created an online resource for practitioners at www.problemsolvingjustice.org.

This web portal offers short primers on such topics as:

· Principles of Problem-Solving Justice
· Using Data
· Engaging Stakeholders
· Publicizing Your Program
· Finding Resources
· Planning
· Mapping Community Resources
· Using Diversion as Part of a Problem-Solving Strategy
· Developing a Community Service Protocol
· Evaluating Your Program

The web page also offers monographs, sample documents, interviews, and other resources.

These materials were created with the help of the US Department of Justice's Bureau of Justice Assistance, which tapped the Center for Court Innovation to serve as its technical assistance provider under the Community-Based Problem-Solving Criminal Justice Initiative.

5th EFRJ Conference - Verona, 17-19.04.2008

'Restorative justice is about people acting together to resolve their conflicts and to find a way to set wrongdoing right by repairing the harm incurred. It builds on the cooperation between different professions and institutions supporting the efforts of the stakeholders. Moreover, for the restorative justice movement to gain momentum and to become ingrained in society, an understanding and accepting attitude of the wider public, including the media, is needed. This conference will therefore invite participants to take a closer look at the practices and the structures of cooperation between the major actors in this field.'

Apenas 300 lugares disponíveis, pelo que se aconselha o registo atempado.
