As a part of the Thirtieth Anniversary celebrations of Centre for Criminal Justice Studies (CCJS) at the University of Leeds, this conference will bring together and showcase research, practice and theorising about future direction and new advances in restorative justice.

Over two days the conference will bring together international experts, scholars and practitioners to debate new directions in restorative justice research and practice. The first day will focus on the use of restorative justice in the resolution of inter-personal conflicts (primarily in the UK) while the second day will focus on the use of restorative practices in inter-group and international conflicts and settings.

Day One will explore conclusions from recently completed research into restorative justice within policing undertaken by the University of Sheffield and University of Leeds as part of the national Police Knowledge Fund. Speakers from the UK and overseas will help to situate the findings within a wider discussion and debate about possible futures in restorative justice not only in the UK but internationally. Day Two will broaden the scope to explore findings from international research into the role of restorative justice in transitional societies and inter-group conflicts.
