Please read on for a description of this year’s. Please find also below presentations I’ve prepared: the first as a Keynote. The next develops at length penal abolitionism as crucial for the Restorative Justice field to embrace.
Invigorate your restorative work and your passion, as we celebrate how the movement has matured – transforming people, communities and systems worldwide. This gathering is designed to energise you with new findings, ideas and research. As you hear stories from other cultures and contexts, you will connect to the diversity of peacemaking traditions to refresh your creative core.
Interact with over 50 presenters in a private social network – April 23-30, 2022.
Delegates at the previous Conference have spoken of being re-inspired, challenged, amazed and energised. Here are some of the reflections that have come in. . .
Thank you so much for an amazing event!

This was a space for people in different parts of the world to connect with restorative practitioners and academics of all levels of experience, including many people whose work I have deeply admired but never got a chance to engage with before.

The format was fantastic – I’m in Australia so a very different time zone to most. I really appreciated the opportunity to engage with so much of the content without having to get up in the middle of the night.
Jane Bolitho, Australia
The quality and variety of speakers was sensational. I also appreciated that I could leave feedback on a presenter’s wall and read the feedback of others. The Chat Wall was almost like the chat over a cuppa at the break at a conference where important reflection time, sharing – and connecting with others occurs. It has been an amazing 10 days and my head is swirling with ideas but almost as important my soul has been fed.
