SACRO Annual Conference 2009

Date: Wednesday 18 March 2009
Venue: Our Dynamic Earth, Holyrood Road, Edinburgh.

This year, Sacro will partner with Victim Support Scotland for a conference on restorative practices. The conference will focus on the many areas in which restorative practices can be applied to meet the needs of victims and address the harm caused by anti-social behaviour and offending.

Solicitor General, Frank Mulholland and Victim Support Scotland’s Director of Development, Susan Gallagher will be joined on the day by Prof. Dr. Ivo Aertsen, of the Department of Criminal Law and Criminology at University of Leuven, Belgium.

In addition to these key presentations, the conference will hold a series of dedicated “practice focus” sessions. Each session will concentrate on a specific application of restorative practice and will show how this innovative approach to repairing harm can benefit our communities and address the needs of those harmed and affected by offending.

A full programme will be announced shortly. Booking and other information will be posted here when confirmed.
