Over the last years various training proposals related to Restorative Justice (RJ) and mediation has been developed.


Some of them tend to train mediators as individual professionals with postgraduate courses, some others form groups of mediators linked to specific communities.


The MEDIAREJ projects aims to take stock of various training methods and implementing them through joint staff training and work on innovative IOs in 4 European countries, establishing a network among trained professionals and organisations. 


This exchange is aimed at drafting agreed guidelines to clarify the essential requirements for the training of mediators and mediation trainers to operate effectively and efficiently. To reach the goal of shared guidelines, the exchange of experiences is essential, through targeted and periodic meetings.
It is necessary to become aware that mediation and RJ are primarily practical sciences.


There is a lot of diversity in this area, there are those who, for example, propose, as is the case in the University, postgraduate courses to train mediators.



The project aims to build and consolidate a network of:

1) trainers in mediation operating in existing centres;

2) mediators who work in restorative practices projects groups in their local areas;

3) mediation experts as academics and researchers, to encourage the exchange of practical mediation experiences, and in particular to discuss the specific aspects of each territory to provide training to mediators and to publish in scientific papers the best restorative practices or to criticize them.


Target Groups 

The MEDIAREJ project will target trainers of mediators and mediators engaged in their territories to work in mediation centres and RJ, as well as university scholars and researchers.


The proposal aims to increase the number of people involved in restorative justice so that they become a stable point of reference in the various local areas.


The so trained mediators will then work in a team to implement RJ projects at the territorial level to involve people in restorative practice and disseminate the culture of humanistic mediation.
