Building a Worldwide Restorative Practices Learning Network
Jan 25, 2012
The 15th World Conference of the International Institute for Restorative Practices will explore the concept of Building a Worldwide Restorative Practices Learning Network.
According to the event organisers:
This interdisciplinary conference will provide an international perspective on restorative practices theory and practice in a variety of settings, including education, social welfare, criminal justice, community development and workplaces. Restorative practitioners from around the world will share their knowledge and achievements and find encouragement, support and advice.
