D. Chankova/A. Storgaard/P. Laitinen..., Restorative Justice in Criminal Matters: Towards a new European Perspective, 2013

Under the Specific Programme Criminal Justice of the European Commission (Dire­ctorate-General Justice - Directorate B: Criminal Justice), the Department of Criminal Law and Criminology, Faculty of Law, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece had succes­s­fully submitted a relevant research proposal and took over the coordination of a research project (JUST/2010/JPEN/AG/1534) that aimed at the promotion and the further diffusion of restorative justice in Europe. The title of the project was: "The 3E Model for a restorative justice strategy in Europe" and the full subtitle: "The geographic distribution of restorative justice in 11 European Countries and the configuration of an Effe­ctive - Economic - European Strategy Model for its further diffusion".

The project was composed by two main branches, aiming at the development of a restorative justice response to crime in 11 European countries: a) a comparative study of 11 European countries from the North (Finland, Denmark), Western Central (Germany, United Kingdom, Netherlands), Eastern Central (Hungary, Poland, Bulgaria) and South Europe (Spain, Greece, Turkey), and b) a relevant project aiming at the organization of a coherent strategy, the identification and the diffusion of effective measures and proce­dures and the exchange of good and cost-effective practices through a flexible and easily applicable Model, for their wider adoption and their better application in Europe.

The country reports and the most useful findings of this project (i.e. the compa­rative research) are presented at the present book.
