The overarching theme is to explore what
is state of the art in Restorative Justice (RJ), today and what are
future ambitions for engagement with other disciplines.
The workshop will provide the opportunity to bring together academic
researchers from the RJ, Theatre and Design professions who are
concerned in their existing practice with building empathy. How empathy
is built by each profession and the methods they use are likely to be
the subject of lively discipline exchange.

social issues through actual design practice by interpreting offender
techniques and delivering design against crime interventions. "
