Empowering Europe with Restorative Justice: A Bold Vision

Restorative Justice for All (RJ4All) International Institute  is thrilled to announce the launch of their new initiative, RJ4All Europe, headquartered in Cyprus. RJ4All Europe aims to build upon the RJ4All International Institute’s successful methodologies in utilising restorative justice to address power abuse. As the child of the RJ4All International Institute, RJ4All Europe is committed to championing restorative justice practices throughout Europe and internationally, promoting principles of power sharing, fairness, equality, dignity, and respect.

RJ4All Europe stands for our glocal vision of addressing poverty, advance equality, foster community cohesion, and protect human rights. We are well-equipped to achieve this vision and create a brighter, more equitable Europe. Neither Brexit nor any other political or insignificant barrier can prevent us from making restorative justice accessible to all.”

Said Dr. Theo Gavrielides, Director and founder of the RJ4All International Institute and RJ4All Europe.

RJ4All Europe pursues its vision through the power of dialogue, education, sports, art, and the practices of restorative justice. The initiative will implement social justice and poverty relief projects, offer development and educational programmes, establish restorative justice youth clubs, conduct intercultural and awareness-raising workshops, and provide direct interventions in the form of circles, mediation, and restorative justice conferences. Building on RJ4All’s holistic approach, RJ4All Europe will tap into the International Institute’s three additional arms to maximise impact, including: RJ4All Publications (publishing arm), RJ4All Sports (fitness arm), and RJ4All Ecourses (training arm).

RJ4All Europe represents a significant step towards achieving our institute’s mission of empowering individuals, communities, and organisations towards a more equitable, just, and sustainable world. RJ4All Europe is the leading international restorative justice network, with members from over 40 countries, and benefits from RJ4All’s large portfolio of successful projects conducted for the EU, UK funders, and international organisations. RJ4All Europe gains strength and increased access to consortia opportunities for funding applications to influential bodies such as the EU, UN, and Council of Europe. To kick off the initiative, RJ4All Europe launches the RJ4All Europe website as a platform to collaborate with partners, facilitate restorative justice research, and disseminate restorative justice resources across Europe.

“I am truly delighted to witness RJ4All’s expansion of its mission and approach into Europe. This expansion underscores the profound impact that restorative justice values can have in addressing pressing issues like social tension and power abuse. In an era marked by growing inequality, restorative justice ethos is essential to effectively confront these complex challenges”.

Commended by Councillor Nick Johnson, a member of RJ4All’s Non-Executive Directors, based in London.

In emphasising the strategy and priority for global collaboration and partnership, Dr. Gavrielides stated, “Restorative justice is a global movement that requires collective efforts from like-minded organisations, as we cannot do it alone.”
