What is Restorative Justice?
“Restorative Justice is a new way of thinking about crime and criminal justice.
It emphasizes the way in which crime hurts relationships between people who live in a community. Crime is seen as something done against a victim and the community – not simply as a violation against the state. Crime may be any wrong that weakens relationships between people or harms community living. In restorative justice, the offender becomes accountable to those he or she has harmed. Justice is done for victims, victimized communities and offenders”.
