This book examines the introduction, quality and implementation of court-based restorative practices for young offenders in Greece. Although RJ is discussed widely in Europe, it is only now that the subject is becoming of growing importance to Greece. The move is dictated by the need to conform to recent EU legislation which promotes the application of mediated forms of dispute resolution and supports the rights of victims of crime within penal proceedings.
