Interactive RJ Documentary

ITD accountsselectioninterface

The innovative multimedia presentation Inside the Distance documents victim/offender mediation practices in Belgium and shows how mediation poses a potential cultural alternative to dominant modes, methods and theories of justice and punishment. This work, which includes interviews with mediators, criminologists, victims and offenders was conducted in Leuven and Brussels (Belgium), and focuses on the “subject positions” of victim, offender and mediator. These fluid positions are explored in relationship to the accounts of those involved and their sense of space and proximity in the resolution process.

This three-part web documentary can be likened to an art installation that invites viewer interaction. Give yourself some quiet, unimpeded time to enter this creative learning zone. Primary creator: Sharon Daniel
