As a researcher, I am involved in the project Design and implementation of ICT-based commmunication systems in victim-offender mediation that is supervised by dr. Ellen Giebels, dr. Sven Zebel, dr. Marielle Stoelinga en prof.dr. Boudewijn Haverkort. It is funded by the Tech4People program (faculty BMS). Victim offender mediation is often considered a crucial step in the recovery of crime victims as well as for the effective treatment and prevention of recidivism of offenders. This project's ambition is to realize ground-breaking advances in the development and applicability of victim-offender mediation (VOM), through the design and implementation of ICT-based communication systems. It takes place in collaboration with Perspectief Herstelbemiddeling (Utrecht) that puts mediation processes in practice.
