Introducing Restorative Conferencing: Discussion Paper, December 2011

posted on 2023-05-25, 02:50 authored by Isabelle Bartkowiak-TheronIsabelle Bartkowiak-Theron

This discussion paper examines the current development of the Introducing Restorative Conference scheme (hereafter IRC) and is particularly concerned with various initiative processes (administrative, referrals, training, etc.). It provides a brief review of current procedures and includes, for the reader’s benefit, some brief considerations on how other initiatives (in Australia and elsewhere) work, as a start-up of conversations. The IRC steering committee approved this discussion paper in August 2011.

The purpose of this paper is to encourage IRC participants, stakeholders and community members to provide anonymous feedback about the IRC initiative, offering them a platform from which they can ponder issues, formulate opinions and forward feedback to an independent body, in their own time. Responses will be compiled and analysed in January 2012, and will constitute the backbone of the UTAS 2nd Interim Report (due February 2012).
