This report examines the potential of restorative justice programmes to facilitate conflict resolution and provide appropriate protection to children. This applies to the justice system, whether children are victims, offenders or witnesses, but it also applies in a range of other contexts, including at school, in residential care units, in social welfare settings and in the community.

In light of this dramatic situation, it is imperative to promote strategies that provide an alternative to detention and custodial sentences for children.
