The Flemish government supports services dealing with the alternative settlement of juvenile offenders. Three forms of intermediate treatment can be distinguished: mediation, community service order and re-educational projects (training courses). Up to now, this (new) sector has known an uncontrolled growth. The main objectives of this inter-university research are to: (1) develop a theoretical conceptual framework of restorative justice within juvenile justice; (2) analyse and evaluate from a social descriptive perspective the intermediate treatment practices in Flanders; (3) evaluate the juvenile offender's legal statute within these practices; (4) analyse and evaluate the institutional-administrative organisation of these practices.
