Abstract: This report examines the Balanced and Restorative Justice Project being developed as an outgrowth of the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention's juvenile restitution training and technical assistance program. The broad focus of this project is on developing balanced, community-based systems designed to use restorative sanctions and processes, e.g., community service, victim involvement, mediation, and restitution, and related approaches as catalysts for change in the juvenile justice system. The three programming priorities of this conceptual framework are accountability, community protection, and competency development. Tables describe new roles in the balanced approach and retributive and restorative justice assumptions. The project strategy calls for national and selected State and local training, technical assistance, and program development and is divided into two implementation tracks: model development in pilot jurisdictions and national technical assistance, training, and coalition building. In a second type of model development activity, project staff develop profiles of jurisdictions that have made exemplary progress in implementing the balanced approach. Three counties in Oregon and Travis County, Texas were selected for these profiles. Three regional Restorative Justice Roundtables are scheduled to be held during fiscal year 1994-1995. A national symposium on the balanced and restorative justice model also is scheduled for 1995. Notes, appendix, references
