IIRP Europe Conference
Accepted presenters receive a reduced registration rate. Proposal deadline: 16th January 2017.
Join the International Institute for Restorative Practices Europe and leading practitioners and thinkers who are shaping the emerging social science of restorative practices. The field of restorative practices is undergoing a rapid evolution in theory development and practice innovation.
Simply put, restorative practices is the study of relationships and community – applied in a wide variety of settings. Restorative practices integrates developments from a range of disciplines and fields, including education, psychology, social work, criminology, sociology, organisational development and leadership. Restorative practices build healthy communities, increase social capital, reduce the impact of crime, decrease antisocial behaviour, repair harm and restore relationships.
The conference will highlight several key issues that European countries are currently facing: de-radicalisation and preventing radicalisation; migration and immigration; and historic sexual abuse, child sexual exploitation, human trafficking and the sex trade.
Participate in related conference events including: Relational and Restorative Processes: An Anti-Bullying Strategy; Introduction to Restorative Practices & Using Circles Effectively; and the Pre-conference Dinner.
"I enjoyed the exchange of opinions and the way people related to each other. I saw many great possibilities for restorative practices, in fields from family services to labor relations."
Marisa Hontoria, Attorney, Barcelona, Spain
