Introducing the findings of the MEREPS Project to students

Uploaded at: 2012. 12. 11.


Borbála Fellegi participated as a guest in the roundtable discussion organized by ELTE Faculty of Law’s Criminology Scientific Students’ Association on the subject of prison mediation, where she talked with criminologist-lawyer students about the findings of the MEREPS project and a screening also took place.

The discussion examined the following questions in connection with criminal mediation, that can be used (since the year 2006) in minor criminal cases: Could mediation be used in more serious cases, together with imprisonment? Can mediation ease the contorversions between inmates and prison staff? Can it help to resolve cell-conflicts? Can a fundamentally restorative prison exist?

The partners of Foresee’s executive during the discussion, in the talk about the findings of the MEREPS Project and the answering of questions were Szilvia Istvánov ( disciplinator, MEREPS-trained mediator, Juvenile Prison, Tököl) and János Drienyovszki ( mediator, former criminal mediator of the Probation Service, nowdays parttaker of prison mediation projects, trainer).

Upon the end of the discussion, the film „Woolf Within” that could be given further thoughts in relation with MEREPS Project has been screened.
