The partners in this project organise a social activity on Thursday evening (19 April, 20-22hrs), including a film screening followed by a debate to introduce the topic of the seminar. More info will be shared with the registered participants closer to the event.
This seminar has the objective to share preliminary findings and experiences on RJ in road traffic offences. The targeted audience is RJ practitioners and experts but also other professionals like victim support workers and victim-volunteers. The event is free of charge but registration is compulsory: please fill in the online form on the bottom of this page before 10 April.
The project focuses on three main topics:
1. Needs of road traffic victims, with focus on information & support
2. Restorative justice for people involved in road traffic offences, highlighting also the role of the police, the judiciary and social services
3. Interdisciplinary cooperation between the different groups involved (e.g. the police, the judiciary, victim support services, the medical sector, self-help groups of victim-volunteers, insurance agencies).
The project is coordinated by Rondpunt (Flemish service supporting victims of road traffic accidents) with the support of the Justice programme of the EU. Partners in this project are Moderator (Flemish RJ service) and the KU Leuven Institute of Criminology. Associate partners are the EFRJ, the European Federation of Road Traffic Victims (FEVR) and Victim Support Europe.
