EFRJ-2018

10th international EFRJ Conference (Tirana 2018)

Thu, 14 Jun 2018 – Sat, 16 Jun 2018

THEMES

Restorative justice remains today the most concrete vision of challenging current penal developments and offering alternatives to the repressive and exclusionary approaches used in addressing current societal challenges. This vision is manifested in a desire to reform both penal and social systems in their inner structures, in favor of practices that are more adequate to the ideals and principles of modern democracies and to human rights.

To live up to this vision and address current penal and social challenges, the restorative movement has to constantly reimagine itself, and the EFRJ conference intends to be the international forum for doing that. In 2018 Europe will also celebrate the 50th anniversary of the civil rights movements and therefore we would like to honor that important heritage in this conference.

The conference will explore at depth the realities and visions of restorative justice in the European penal and social landscapes, through three core themes: 1. Restorative intersections with the criminal justice system; 2.Restorative juvenile justice realities and visions; 3. Reimagining restorative justice as a social movement

CALL FOR PAPERS

It is an established tradition of the EFRJ to be inclusive and invite in its conferences practitioners, researchers, scholars, legal professionals, social workers, artists, policy makers and activists to submit proposals for presenting during the parallel workshop sessions.

We received more than 80 proposals by 1 November. Our scientific committee is currently reviewing them all. The new deadline is 7 January 2018: we welcome more practice-oriented presentations and training sessions (but everyone is welcomed to apply).
