i-RESTORE 2.0 project builds on the i-RESTORE project, which focused on promoting the use of restorative justice in cases involving child victims of crime and strengthening the capacities of justice professionals. Based on the results of that project, i-RESTORE 2.0 was drafted to go a step further and create accessible quality restorative justice processes for children in contact with the law. I-RESTORE includes an e-learning course to build and/or increase the capacities of different professionals working with child victims and/or child offenders in the criminal justice and in the child protection systems in terms of child-victim-friendly restorative justice approaches and mechanisms. The i-RESTORE e-learning course on Protecting Child Victims Through Restorative Justice is now available in Dutch, Estonian, Romanian, Greek, Albanian, English and Hungarian.
