RJ Article Torzs, Edit and Fellegi, Borbala. Internal and external communication of VOM in Hungary
The starting questions for the first two presentations about the Hungarian system were the following: how to improve the efficiency of a centrally structured VOM service? How to develop the methodological and communicational aspects of mediation after not more than 1.5 year of practice? How to concretise some changes in the professional culture of a Central European country having strong centralised and legalistic legal traditions? (excerpt)

RJ Article Gesko, Sandor. Community mediation in Hungary.
After the political changes in the late 1980s and early 1990s, Hungary experienced such developments that fundamentally transformed the values of certain groups of society and their relationships with other groups. This was a common phenomenon in the region. The well-known and familiar relationships of the past, which had been positive and negative but nevertheless had specifically defined the position of various groups in relation to each other, started to deteriorate.

Three-year research project on mediation and restorative justice in prison settings
from the flyer announcing the project: The Mediation and Restorative Justice in Prison Settings Project is a three year international exchange project funded by the European Commission, between the counties of Germany, Hungary and the UK. The project will identify, exchange and develop best practice for the use of restorative justice (“RJ”) with the most serious crimes, particularly those against persons and property attracting a custodial sentence. Research suggests that RJ can have the biggest impact on the lives of victims and offenders where such serious crimeshave been committed.

RJ Article Blaha, Magdolna Fabianne and Velez, Edit and Negrea, Vidia. The use of family group conferencing/Decision-making with prisoners in prison probation and during after-care in Hungary.
For years now, the Hungarian Probation Service has considered it one of its main tasks to use the methods of restorative justice more extensively in their work with offenders. These efforts were supported by the fact that the probation service is now responsible for the tasks related to mediation and as such mediation in criminal cases has become an institutional form of restorative justice. The Probation service is working on the implementation of restorative justice principles in other types of cases also, and is trying to ensure that the various techniques and procedures become integral parts of the probation officers' case management methodology. To this end, various experimental projects were launched. One of these was a project which the purpose was to include the method of family group conferencing/decision-making in the case management of probation officers. (excerpt)

Restorative practices in Hungary: An ex-prisoner is reintegrated into the community
from the article by Vidia Negrea: As the representative of Community Service Foundation of Hungary, the Hungarian affiliate of the International Institute for Restorative Practices (IIRP), I participated in a group session of the Hungarian Crime Prevention and Prison Mission Foundation in summer 2009 (Sycamore Tree Project — — or Zacchaeus Program in Hungary). There I met the governor of Balassagyarmat prison, where inmates were working in groups on issues related to their crimes and exploring ways to repair relationships they had damaged. Some inmates began accepting responsibility for what they had done and were motivated to make things right and earn forgiveness of victims and their families. Prisoners made symbolic reparation in the form of community service within the prison, but there was still a lot to do to create opportunities for offenders to make contact with victims and shed the stigma of their offense by means of direct reparation. Also, prison management believed it important to support processes, acceptable to victimized families and communities, to help prisoners regain control of their lives and prevent reoffending.

RJ Article White Ring Public Benefit Association Budapest. Opinions and Recommendations Concerning the Legal Position and Compensation of the Victims of Crimes.
The White Ring Public Benefit Association in Budapest, Hungary, concerned with victim assistance, support, and compensation, offers specific recommendations to improve the legal position of crime victims. The association focuses on the legal position of victims involving suggestions to be incorporated in Hungary's Criminal Code and Procedural Statute. Criminal law modifications to protect victim interests are identified, as well as procedural law proposals. The need for adequate consideration of victim rights in court proceedings is emphasized, and ideas and recommendations on judicial reform are offered. The Association proposes that mediation be considered to reach agreement between victim and offender, and that both criminal code and restorative justice concepts be used to protect and compensate crime victims.
