An opportunity for dialogue, for a comparison, for theoretical / practical exchange on mediation and Restorative Justice, which for years has been committed by the Mediation Unit of the City of Palermo. A meeting of stories, personal and professional experiences starting from the district of Danisinni involving the representatives of the three countries of Central and South America (Colombia: 3 Magistrates of the Superior Council of the Judiciary, Mexico: 1 Magistrate and 3 Mediators, Costa Rica: 1 Director of the First School of Training and 3 Operators of the Regional Project for Restorative Justice).

Restorative justice is an approach to justice that personalizes the crime by having the victims and the offenders mediate a restitution agreement to the satisfaction of each, as well as involving the community. This contrasts to more punitive approaches where the main aim is retributivejustice or to satisfy abstract legal principles.
