Victim/offender mediation in Turkey
from the post by Janine P. Geske on Marquette University Law School Faculty Blog: After a delegation of members of the Turkish Parliament visited Marquette Law School last month, I had the privilege of traveling to Istanbul to moderate a victim/offender mediation conference for two hundred fifty Turkish prosecutors and judges. There were fourteen of us restorative justice “experts” from ten different countries who were there for three days to talk to the ballroom full of lawyers, who wanted to learn how to best implement Turkey’s already enacted victim/offender mediation process during criminal prosecutions. It was a fabulous experience.

David Daubney of Canada presented the 2011 International Prize for Restorative Justice
by Dan Van Ness David Daubney has been awarded the 2011 International Prize for Restorative Justice in recognition of the public policy leadership he has provided in support of restorative justice. The presentation was made during the Prison Fellowship World Convocation underway in Toronto, Canada from 28 June – 2 July, 2011. Daubney’s interest in restorative justice began twenty five years ago when he was a Member of Parliament, chairing the House of Commons Standing Committee on Justice. The Committee was engaged in a year-long study of public and professional attitudes about crime and criminal justice. As it conducted hearings across Canada, its members began to hear about a concept that was new to all of them: restorative justice. They heard from grassroots organizations operating victim offender reconciliation programs in Canada and from crime victims who spoke about the personal healing they had received from their involvement in these programs. The Committee was so impressed that it recommended in its 1987 report “Taking Responsibility” – known to many as the Daubney Report – that restorative values and principles be incorporated into the Canadian Criminal Code.

File McElrea, FWM. Justice in the Community: The New Zealand Experience
Under the Children Young Persons and Their Families Act 1989 offending by "young persons" - ie young people of at least 14 years of age but under 17 - is the jurisdiction of a specialist Youth Court. Potentially this court can deal with all offences except murder and manslaughter, although very serious offences such as rape are usually referred on to the adult courts. In deciding whether a disputed charge is proved the adversary system is maintained in full (with one exception, concerning pleading, which I mention later), however in disposing of admitted or proved offences a radically new system is in force. The key component is the Family Group Conference ("FGC"), convened and facilitated by a Youth Justice Coordinator, a Department of Social Welfare employee.

File Restorative juvenile justice legislation and policy: A national assessement
While the modern day restorative justice movement continues to evolve at the state and community levels, jurisdictions have addressed juvenile justice system concerns with policy and legislative agendas. These actions have lead to a response to juvenile crime and established a balance between the needs of victims, offenders and community. This article serves as an update of the research completed by the author (O’Brien, 1999), who found that a majority of states had incorporated restorative justice language in legislation, policy, mission or program. Three states are also identified as model implementation states. (from the article)

Restorative justice aims to reduce relapsing
from Elaine Attard's article in Malta Independent Online: ....The new Bill will see the creation of a new section within the Probation Services. Its functions would be to draw up a victims’ charter, approved by the ministry, to establish the criteria for mediators’ appointment and to promote mediation between the victims and offenders. The minister described this move as an ambitious one towards empowering victims and to give them the attention they deserve in the restorative process. Mediation helps victims understand why offences were perpetrated while the offender can take the responsibility of his or her offence.
