Course on RJ practice
In early March a course on Restorative Justice Practice will start at Victoria University (New Zealand), with an online-platform for distance students. Lectures will be given by researchers and practitioners in the field.
The final conference of the MARGIN project, a research addressing the topic of insecurity in marginalised areas, will take place in Budapest on 3-5 April. A relevant panel for our RJ community is ‘Institutional perspectives on crime prevention and restorative justice’ on the second conference day.

Position paper on victims of elder abuse
On the occasion of the European Day for Victims of Crime (22 Feb), AGE Platform Europe published a position paper on the protection of victims of elder abuse, referring to the implementation of the Victims’ Directive. AGE’s work around elder abuse has focused on prevention, calling for a rights-based approach to the care of older persons in need of assistance and support.
UN manual on extremism in prison
The new United Nations manual to address management of violent extremists in prison settings includes a (small) section on the reintegration of prisoners and the role of victims and communities.
Moment of inspiration
Kintsugi is the Japanese art of restoring broken objects, of recognising the beauty in the broken things, of finding treasure in life’s scars. In this TED talk, Audrey Harris presents her understanding of the philosophy behind Kintsugi, something symbolic that may talk also to our RJ community.
