The objective of the research is to contribute to the policy framework ‘Mediation in criminal justice’ (‘Herstelbemiddeling in het strafrecht’), by providing insights into the lessons learned from the pilots regarding possibilities, impossibilities and necessary conditions of mediation in criminal justice. In this report a distinction is made between the terms mediation and mediation in criminal law. The former entails all forms of guided meetings between victims and (alleged) perpetrators of criminal facts. The latter concerns a specific form of mediation in which the meeting is intended to result in a judicial agreement and/or of which the result can be taken into account in the criminal procedure.
