Restorative justice - alternative sanctions to resocialization

The project "Restorative Justice - Alternative Sanctions to Resocialization" aims to contribute to strengthening the rule of law in Montenegro, with a special focus on the protection of human rights and freedoms. The specific objective of the project is to contribute to the improvement and promotion of the system of alternative sanctions, in accordance with the standards of the European Union and the best international practice.

Through the organization of a set of activities, the project will directly influence the achievement of the stated goals, which will contribute to the affirmation of the system of alternative sanctions and the existing repressive system of criminal sanctions can be humanized and rationalized. More precisely, through the analysis of the existing imposed and executed alternative sanctions in Montenegro, by courts and criminal offenses, with a focus on work in the public interest and house arrest, the currently missing data will be collected and systematized, but also further debate on steps necessary to improve this system in Montenegro.

The project envisages the organization of a national conference and promotional campaign to raise public awareness of the importance of alternative sanctions, with best examples from comparative practice, as well as the implementation of a continuous information campaign through traditional and new media. In relation to the professional public, an advocacy campaign will be conducted on the need and advantages of the system of alternative sanctions.
