Source: (2006) Papers presented at the Fourth Conference of the European Forum for Restorative Justice, â€œRestorative justice: An agenda for Europeâ€, Barcelona, Spain, 15-17 June 2006.
This workshop aims to share the reflections and lessons from a restorative mediation done in a sexual offence case in which the victim was the sister of an offenderâ€™s friend and where the victimâ€™s husband and the father also participated. The mediation process was managed by two mediators within the Mediation-Restoration Programme operating in the criminal justice system in Catalonia since 1998. The referral came from the Figueres Penitentiary Centre, more precisely from the professionals in charge of the inmateâ€™s rehabilitation needs and it lasted for approximately a year, finishing in April 2005.
