Submit a proposal for a 50-minute breakout presentation at http://www.iirp.edu/pa12

Proposal deadline is February 29, 2012.  Accepted presenters recieve a reduced registration rate.

A participatory experience. Most IIRP conference presenters are not professional speakers. Aside from a few featured speakers and videos, our conferences are created by you and others like you who have submitted proposals to present in 50-minute breakout sessions. We encourage you to share your experiences and knowledge. No formal papers are required.

An interdisciplinary conference. This conference will provide an international perspective on restorative practices theory and practice in a variety of settings, including education, social welfare, criminal justice, community development and workplaces. Restorative practitioners from around the world will share their knowledge and achievements and find encouragement, support and advice. Educators, social welfare and criminal justice professionals, and scholars from many countries will share their experiences with restorative practices during plenary sessions and small breakout sessions.

Who should attend. Social workers, teachers, school administrators, probation officers, police, researchers, community volunteers, criminologists, counselors, peacemakers, academicians, judges, public planners, corrections officers and others …

Building a Worldwide Restorative Practices Learning Network

The IIRP proposes a participatory, collaborative learning network to advance restorative practices around the world. On July 31, the day before the conference, the IIRP has scheduled a meeting in Bethlehem in which interested individuals and organizations will plan the steps necessary to develop this new membership organization. The meeting will consider the activities of the tentatively named Restorative Practices Association, which may include an internet-based professional magazine and peer-reviewed academic journal. The IIRP will, in the months preceding the conference, conduct a series of worldwide surveys to assess interest in the creation of this new Restorative Practices Association.
