Restorative Justice

The forms of restorative justice dialogue represented in the collection include Victim Offender Mediation (also known as Victim Offender Reconciliation, Victim Offender Dialogue, and Victim-Sensitive Offender Dialogue), Group Conferencing (including family group conferencing and community group conferencing), Circles, and Other (reparation boards and other dialogue services).
  • Restorative Justice Dialogue: Evidence-Based Practice from the Center for Restorative Justice and Peacemaking : As a means of providing an in-depth examination of restorative justice in practice, we have elected to turn our close-up lens on restorative justice dialogue. In so doing, we do not mean to imply that it is the best practice or the only practice worth examining. We selected it because it is the oldest, most widely practiced, and most thoroughly researched of the various processes that fall under the broad umbrella of restorative justice.
  • Restorative Justice Online : Restorative justice emphasizes repairing the harm caused by crime. When victims, offenders and community members meet to decide how to do that, the results can be transformational.
  • Restorative Measures in the Schools : Welcome to the web site for Restorative Justice in the schools. This site strives to provide curriculum for use in the everyday classroom. Because all the activities at this site use the circle format (people gathered in a circle), we also provide an overview of how a circle works.
  • Restorative Practices for School Communities : Restorative Practices for School Communities strives to shift how people think about responsibility and accountability. By building a strong community, and allowing all members to take responsibility for the community, discipline takes on a new dimension, where repairing the harm becomes more important than which rule was broken.
