Implementing Restorative Justice with Child Victims Objectives


This project aims to successfully implement practices of juvenile restorative justice in the EU in order to address the needs of young victims of crime in the most satisfying ways. The specific objectives of the project are:

(a) To train professionals in three selected EUMS to the concrete use of RJ practices with child victims;

(b) To make RJ processes a more common response to crimes committed against and/or by young people in EU28, no matter the gravity of the crime or the age of the victim or offender;

(c) To protect and address the needs of young victims of crime through validated RJ processes;

(d) To participate to a better implementation of the Victims Directive (2012/29/EU);

(e) To participate to the implementation of the Directive on procedural safeguards for children suspected or accused in criminal proceedings, Article 19.3.
