Abstract: Restorative justice solutions emphasize the need to repair the harm caused by a criminal act, focusing less on retributive aspects of criminal justice. These solutions can substitute a criminal proceeding or applied in parallel to or after criminal proceedings. They can also involve communities, addressing the wider and devastating impact of hate crimes on society. The webinar is organized as part of the Enhancing Stakeholder Awareness and Resources for Hate Crime Victim Support (EStAR) project []. It will explore the general picture of the existing restorative justice practices and their implementation. Leading experts and practitioners in the field will highlight the benefits and considerations in applying restorative justice solutions for hate crime and ways to ensure that victims are placed at the center of such solutions.
