Passionate about the implementation of Restorative Justice in Greece and worldwide, Alexia aims to make a difference in the Greek sociocultural scene.
Having a background in Law (University of Athens) and demonstrated working experience in the law practice industry, she then specialized in Mediation and attended a 4-year training in Psychodrama (PCPD, FEPTO member). Inspired by social interaction, she has been facilitating workshops and delivering training in communication and diversity management. When she finally participated in her first training in Restorative Justice Practices, she immediately knew this was her life purpose. Member of the European Forum for Restorative Justice, she was also awarded the Stoltzfus Scholarship (Eastern Mennonite University, USA) and thus given the chance to dive deeper in the restorative philosophy. She has been facilitating Restorative Circles ever since, and was a trainer in the National Center of Public Administration and Local Government (EKDDA) in victim-offender mediation and restorative circles for Probation Officers from all over Greece.
Having participated in many European programs, she found in START the opportunity to enrich her competencies and gain practical skills: not only to implement her ongoing project, but also to establish a sustainable organization to create the cultural change she believes in.
