Thanks to this Triangular Cooperation Initiative, the Judiciary of Paraguay and the State Centre for Mediation, Conciliation and Restorative Justice of the State of Mexico were able to maximise all of this knowledge and experience for the design, implementation, development and consolidation of restorative processes of the Judiciary of Costa Rica, a benchmark in the sector, together with the Judiciary of the Dominican Republic. This has helped contribute to its goal of strengthening Restorative Justice, especially with regard to the use of appropriate technologies to guarantee access for the most vulnerable.
In addition, the Universidad de Vigo and the Universidad de Santiago de Compostela contributed by providing their methodological skills in the field, as well as their knowledge networks in Spain and Europe.
Working under a partnership-based approach has enriched and strengthened all of the entities, since the particular experiences of each one was the subject of analysis and debate for the mutual benefit of the others, as was the case during the implementation of the Triangular Cooperation project within the framework of the first phase of the ADELANTE Programme. In particular, the application of this expertise in contexts such as Paraguay and the State of Mexico resulted in a large body of knowledge, which in turn has enriched and strengthened all of the entities and the Partnership; especially those related to Indigenous Peoples and Restorative Justice within the context of families.
In addition, the active participation of all the entities of the Partnership in regional and subregional networks and specialised platforms will facilitate knowledge sharing with key actors in both Europe and Latin American and the Caribbean, far beyond the framework of the Partnership itself, thus enabling significant scaling up in this area.
