Introducing Restorative Justice in Serbia and Montenegro.

In 2003, the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) office in Belgrade realized that many of the children they worked with in their child protection programmes in Serbia and Montenegro were also in trouble with the law. A study group was formed to look into the conditions faced by these young people and to proposed ways of moving forward. The group settled on restorative justice as a useful approach for dealing with those conditions and UNICEF undertook a project to develop restorative justice programmes for working with young offenders. A first step was to request training in restorative justice and its applications to youth justice.
