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.

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 offender’s friend and where the victim’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 inmate’s rehabilitation needs and it lasted for approximately a year, finishing in April 2005.
