Restorative Justice: Strategies for Change (RJS4C) supports the development of restorative justice in Europe. In ten countries, our project partners collaborate with a stakeholder group of policymakers, practitioners, researchers, activists and other parties to co-create and implement new national strategies.

This website hosts the work of the Irish partners. Focusing on criminal justice, we collect case studies illustrating the use of restorative justice and restorative practices, and map their training and use. We also publish resources to increase knowledge of restorative justice and practices in Ireland, and work to support the development of services, policies and practices in this area. 

This research and website are funded by the Department of Justice.
