File Boonsit, Angkana. Restorative Justice by my experience
Fortunately, the Director-General of the Department of Probation, Dr. Kittipong Kittayarak, is the leading thinker on restorative justice in Thailand. So, there is a master plan of the justice system which supports restorative justice. The vision in this plan is “to develop the justice system by enabling effective use and also enhancing a just and fair, restorative and peaceful society beyond equilibrium between law enforcement and human dignity”. And the mission is “to promote and to develop the justice system and its mechanisms regarding rights/liberty of people, the community and other organizations. The rights of the victim are emphasized for enhancing a vigorous and harmonious society.” (excerpt)

File 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.

From the early 1980s, victim/offender mediation introduced in a few places, by local probation services or by voluntary organizations. (The first Victim/Offender Reconciliation Programme, in Canada, was started by a probation officer.) In 1998, ACOP and Mediation UK issued a joint statement on Victim/offender mediation, agreeing principles and standards. (excerpt)

Good practice Manual: Restorative justice – Support and counselling for crime victims.
From the Introduction to the Manual: As the name implies, the Restorative Justice – Support and Counselling for Crime Victims project was carried out under the philosophical umbrella of Restorative Justice theories and practice. This is not the fi rst time the project partners are encountering the topic and concept of Restorative Justice. One could say that the Czech Probation and Mediation Service has restorative justice in its job description, and the Service is one of its greatest proponents. The Association of Citizen Advice Centres and its centres, the establishment of which in the 1990s was strongly inspired by British citizen advice centres, has been working with the Probation and Mediation Service for nearly eight years and is making an important contribution towards the development of Restorative Justice principles in projects focused on crime victims.

RJ Article Schwalbe, Craig S. and Maschi, Tina. Investigating probation strategies with juvenile offenders: The influence of officers' attitudes and youth characteristics.
Probation officers are the focal point for most interventions with delinquent youths in the juvenile justice system. The present study examines probation strategies and interventions in a sample of 308 probation officers who completed the Probation Practices Assessment Survey (PPAS) in a web-based survey. The PPAS measures six probation approaches: deterrence, restorative justice, treatment, confrontation, counseling, and behavioral tactics. Structural equation models and latent class analyses showed that probation officers use multiple approaches with delinquent youths consistent with the balanced and restorative justice movement. Younger youths, high-risk youths, and youths with prior social service involvements are likely to receive more intensive interventions. The implications of these findings for improving probation practices with delinquent youth are discussed. (author's abstract)

Promising victim related practices in probation and parole
From the executive summary of the publication: Historically, probation and parole practices have been offender-directed and have ignored or passively responded to the concerns of crime victims. While offender supervision strategies are aimed at protecting the public as a whole from further victimization, the interests of individual victims often are lost under the mass of paperwork and growing caseloads of offenders. Promising Victim-Related Practices and Strategies in Probation and Parole addresses ways probation and parole can change from simply offender-directed to a balanced approach, addressing the specific needs of each of the key players, including victims.

RJ Article Harding, J. Whither Restitutional Justice in England and Wales: A Probation Perspective
In the 1980's a series of mediation and reparation schemes were developed in England by probation services. Recent national probation standards require probation officers be concerned about the impact of the crime on victims including an assessment of the offender's attitude and awareness of the consequence of the offence. The recent victims charter takes probation into new work in terms of a requirement that probation officers make contact with victims to notify victims of parole consideration for any prisoner serving a life sentence. Reparative principles can be built into presentence recommendations in the form of compensation to individual victims or unpaid work for the benefit of the wider community.
