Restorative Justice Week 2018

Restorative Justice Week 2018 - Inspiring Innovation

Restorative Justice Week will be held in Canada, and throughout the world, from November 18-25, 2018. The theme for #RJWeek is Inspiring Innovation.

Discover the many uses of restorative justice (RJ). Explore how RJ can deal with harm in different situations: families, neighbourhoods, schools, workplaces, etc. Think about how RJ values and principles can be applied to every day challenges.

What is RJ?

RJ is a philosophy and an approach that views crime and conflict as harm done to people and relationships. It is a non-adversarial, non-retributive approach to justice that emphasizes healing in victims, accountability of offenders, and the involvement of citizens in creating healthier, safer communities. The goal is to reach meaningful, satisfying, and fair outcomes through inclusion, open communication, and truth.
