REVIJ Introduction


The project ‘REVIJ - Reparation to the Victim in the European Juvenile Justice Systems: Comparative Analysis and Transfer of Best Practices’ aims to conduct a comparative of the measures provided for victims in the European juvenile justice systems, focusing on analyzing two aspects:

First, if these measures provided for victims comply with Directive 2012/29/EU of the European Parliament and of The Council, of 25 October 2012, in establishing minimum standards on the rights, support and protection of victims of crime.

Second, the practices that are carried out in restorative services within the juvenile justice field, and the type of guarantees they offer to victims.


  • Obtaining a shared vision about restorative justice services for the victim in the field of juvenile justice.
  • Analyzing the compliance with the Directive 2012/29/UE of the European Parliament and Council, regarding the respect of rights, as well as the support and protection of victims.
  • Compiling a compendium of best practices.
  • Proposing guidelines that can be used by professionals and policy makers.
