Source: (2006) Papers presented at the Fourth Conference of the European Forum for Restorative Justice, “Restorative justice: An agenda for Europe”, Barcelona, Spain, 15-17 June 2006.

The Thai criminal justice system has implemented restorative justice programs since 2003. Presently, about 9,700 conferences were conducted for juvenile cases and 75% of them resulted in non-prosecution order. For adult cases, about 1,500 direct mediation meetings were conducted and 86% of them resulted in agreements made. The presentation will introduce the restorative justice programs implemented in Thailand and discuss about the future plan as well as some critical issues relating to Thai legislation and policy.
