This chapter translates the ideas and theories presented in previous chapters into practical methods within a restorative justice framework. Needs are linked with correlated rights, creating clusters that indicate the interrelationships between them and generate principles for action in restorative justice settings. The Best Interests cluster calls for individual assessments of the short and long term needs of the child, and tailoring the reparation plan according to the child's specific needs. The Control cluster suggests the creation of diverse participation options and participation-enhancing techniques (including child representation). The Procedural justice cluster requires equal access to restorative justice programs for all child victims, including those with special needs. Finally, the Protection cluster calls for age-appropriate information and process, effective monitoring following the process, and safety as a precondition and a central goal of the process. The chapter ends with a set of eight heuristics, offering a starting point for the establishment of child-inclusive restorative practices.

Keywords:   heuristics, needs-rights, child inclusive, restorative justice, best interests, participation, control, procedural justice, protection
