The seminar will launch the IARS report "Restorative Justice and the Secure Estate: Alternatives for Young People."

The fieldwork was carried out in the UK with a particular focus on young people in custody. The event and the IARS report is part of the "Mediation and Restorative Justice in Prison Settings" project MEREPS.

The author of the report and IARS Director, Dr. Theo Gavrielides, will present the findings. The event will be chaired by Dr. Graham Robb, RJC Trustee and Board member of the Youth Justice Board YJB. Other speakers include Bill Kerslake Head of Effective Sentences YJB, Rebecca Newby NOMS Directorate of Commissioning and Commercial, Penelope Gibbs Director of Strategy at Prison Reform Trust and Lizzie Nelson RJC Director.

This will be an interactive seminar where delegates will be questioned and, where agreed, filmed by 99% Campaign young journalists. The findings and footage will be used as part of the high profile 99% Campaign aiming to dispel stereotypes and promote positive stories on young people.Delegate rate: £50 for RJC Members and IARS Members/£60 non-members.
