The Culture and Art for Restorative Justice (CA4RJ) project arises within the context of increased tensions across Europe surrounding migration and integration. The project brings together a cross-sector, strategic partnership of 7 organisations from the UK, Spain, Cyprus, Greece, and Turkey to create resources for professionals working with migrants so that they may incorporate restorative justice values and creative expression into their work. The project is funded by Erasmus+ and is coordinated by the RJ4All International Institute. The partners are Reframe House (UK), RESET (Cyprus), EDRA (Greece), IASIS (Greece), CIS (Spain), and CERA (Turkey).
CA4RJ aims to enhance the knowledge and skills of professionals working with migrants through developing tools that emphasize how restorative justice and art can support migrant integration. The project will result in an e-book, training programme, and interactive tools that can be used by a wide range of professionals working with migrant communities.
This e-book forms part of the project’s results and is the first step in developing evidence-based tools to support migrant integration. The e-book was produced collectively by the project’s partners, each of whom conducted primary and secondary research to explore how restorative justice and art can promote community cohesion. This e-book includes chapters written by each partner in their national language; a shorter e-book written in English also exists that summarizes key findings from the project.
