Europe

Restorative justice in Europe is characterized by experimentation on the part of both government and community actors. With a diversity of systems and cultures in the region, the development of restorative initiatives has been used to address issues of juvenile justice in many countries, alternatives to paramilitary violence in Northern Ireland, groundbreaking European Union initiatives, and justice reform needs in Eastern Europe.
