They could either:- present examples of good cooperation, or the lessons to be learned from failed cooperation- analyse specific problems (obstacles and favourable circumstances) of such cooperation- address specific questions related to this theme, for example:1) ResearchersWhat do practitioners want from researchers? What do researchers want from practitioners? How to interpret research results in a dialogical manner? How to design your own research? How to ‘use’ research? (How to use statistics, quantitative data, qualitative research?)How to ‘translate’ research and research findings for the public, journalists, those working in the field? 2) Policy makersWhat are policy makers expecting from NGOs and from practitioners? What are NGOs and practitioners expecting from policy makers?How to involve practitioners into law-making? In which way should policy makers control and monitor the practice of restorative justice? How can research be made useful to and how can and should it be used by policy makers? 3) The publicHow can cooperation with the media be set up in order to inform the public about RJ? How can cooperation be developed with civil society organisations (including socio-cultural organisations, schools, religious communities, etc.) in order to inform and educate the public and to create broad support for restorative justice? How can we increase the involvement of individual citizens in the functioning of local restorative justice programmes (for example as volunteers)? Teams of presenters representing two (or more) sides of a cooperation are most welcome!Proposals may also deal with the development of restorative justice in Southern Europe, or deal with legislation and policy making at the international level.
