This project is to achieve more knowledge - through empirical evidence – on the needs, experiences and position of victims when participating in Restorative Justice programmes, and by means of this information to foster good practices of victim support and a sound implementation of Restorative Justice among different professional groups active in the field of criminal justice in Europe.


RJE’s general objective is to produce scientific and practical results that will be directly used by decision makers, policy makers and practitioners in their national implementation of the proposed two EU Directives. The produced material will be evidence-based, and will reflect the needs and wishes of victims and professionals. RJE's scientific and practical results will be written in English, Bulgarian, German, Dutch and Greek
