The aims of the research project are to first consider the existing and emerging 
practices of conferencing. The study focuses on conferencing practices which are related 
to  crime  and  will  assess  their  processes  as  well  as  outcomes.  Furthermore  the  study 
compares  conferences with  the more widespread VOM.  In addition the  report  offers a 
detailed and extensive bibliography which lists among other academic publications, old 
and  new  reports  and  evaluation  and  web‐addresses  which  may  be  of  use  to  anybody 
interested  in  the  topic.  The  study  also  explicitly  focuses  on  the  challenges  when 
implementing  conferencing  in  a  continental  European  legal  and  socio‐cultural  context 
and proposes some new avenues for its further development in a European context.
