The paper presents the results of the project “Freedom Wings. Identification and dissemination of European best practices about the restorative justice and evaluation of the role and application of the mediation and the alternative measures in the EU member states”. The project involved Italia (as coordinator), Cipro and Grecia. The main objective of the project is to collect, spread and promote at transnational level good practices of programs of restorative justice and mediation and the non-custodial treatment measures. It aims also to encourage the adoption of participating countries legal system as promised, in particular, the application programs of restorative justice and mediation (see the European Union Council Framework Decision on the position of victims in criminal proceedings, 2001/220/JHA of 15 March 2001 and the Resolution on Action Plans to implement the Vienna Declaration on Crime and Justice: the new challenges of the twenty-first century, the United Nations General Assembly - No 56/261, 31/01/2002, and the resolution on the Basic Principles on the application of restorative justice programs in criminal matters, Economic and Social Council of the United Nations No 15/2002). Precisely, the primary purpose of empirical research is twofold: 1) The first one is to identify best practices of the treatment of minors (14-18 years) and young adults (who have committed a crime when aged less than 18) in the juvenile justice system, and the treatment of adults during execution of punishment. In fact, experimental programs on the remedial actions for the consequences of crime have been recently implemented respecting the victims rights. All participating countries should identify measures that include: for what concerns children and young adults, procedural interventions aimed at reducing the use of imprisonment as advocated by the Standard Minimum Rules for the Administration of Juvenile Justice, VII Congress of the United Nations Beijing, 1985; for adults, alternative measures to detention, as recommended by the resolutions of the Council of Europe and the United Nations. Objectives: to compare and evaluate the effectiveness of interventions for minors and young adults and to verify the effectiveness of interventions implemented in the field of the restorative justice and mediation in the juvenile justice system and the ordinary justice. 2) The second one refers to build up a global vision of restorative justice and a shared methodology of work between all professionals and institutions, by implementing focus groups of inter- professional and multi-agency experts of the Systems of Justice.
