Participation in restorative group dialogues:

Several times a year, victims of crime have the opportunity to participate in restorative group dialogues. Victims and offenders of similar crimes who do not know each other meet in a prison to discuss about crime and its consequences. People who have suffered crimes have the opportunity to tell their story in a safe and respectful environment and explain to prisoners the impact of crimes and the suffering they cause. Previous participants greatly appreciated this safe exchange and found the conversations beneficial and helpful. It is possible to participate in German or French.

Under "News" you will find reports about the experiences of these group dialogues.
