Restorative Justice: Strategies for Change (RJS4C) supports the development of restorative justice in Europe by facilitating the co-creation of national strategies. This website hosts the Irish arm of the project, including case studies, service profiles, research and other resources.

The Department of Justice funded the initial mapping exercise and case study collection in 2021, and funded the website itself from 2021-2023.

Restorative Justice:
Strategies for Change – Ireland

Service Map

With funding from the Department of Justice, RJS4C Ireland has mapped the use of restorative justice and restorative practices in Irish criminal justice. 

You can see our initial findings here; please contact us if you have any further information for us to include.

Our Strategy

In June 2019, RJS4C Ireland published its national strategy to develop restorative justice in Ireland.


On our Resources pages, you can find a wide range of information, including links to Irish laws, strategies and policies, summaries of research, and videos, podcasts, news stories and other multimedia resources on restorative justice in Ireland and elsewhere in the world.

Please let us know if there is anything else that you would like us to include in these pages, or any research that you would like us to summarise.
