Polish Restorative justice and practice in Poland and Britain: Report of a British and Polish Academies' exchange initiative

This is a three-year project funded by the British Academy and the Polish Academy of Sciences. Its purpose is to exchange information and experience about the use and effects of restorative justice and victim-offender mediation for both adult and juvenile offending. The project is set in the broader context of the various European developments that have taken place over the past decade. Articles 10 and 17 of The European Union’s Framework Decision on the Standing of Victims in Criminal Proceedings, which oblige Member States to adapt their legislation in order to promote victim-offender mediation by March 2006, is of particular relevance. The Polish criminal justice system’s responses to crime are, in the case of restorative justice interventions, less well developed than in Great Britain. From the Polish perspective, the principal objective of this research proposal is to gather information about the design and delivery of such interventions for the purpose of informing their own initiatives. This work was undertaken by Dr. David Miers and his team in conjunction with colleagues in Poland.
