Hilde Verhoeven and Inge Vandeurzen and Verstraete, Anneli (2000). Introducing restorative justice in Belgian prisons Leuven, Belgium: Katholieke Universiteit Leuven.

The authors describe a pilot project in Belgium with restorative purposes: the aim of the project is to enable prisoners to take responsibility for their acts and address the conflict between them and their victims. Hence, the project focuses on changing the prison mentality, or the prevailing prison culture. The authors summarize recent changes in society and in criminological theory and practice that provided the background for the project, and they highlight key characteristics of the project.
