For those who have heard the term adn are curious about what it implies.

Synopsis:

How should we as a society respond to wrongdoing? When a crime occurs or an injustice is done, what needs to happen? What does justice require? Victims, offenders, and community members often feel that justice does not adequately meet their needs. Justice professionals frequently express frustration as well. Restorative justice is a process to involve, to the extent possible, those who have a stake in a specific offense and to collectively identify and address harms, needs, and obligations, in order to heal and put things as right as possible.--from The Little Book of Restorative Justice Howard Zehr, known worldwide for his pioneering work in transforming our under-standings of justice, here proposes workable Principles and Practices for making restorative justice both possible and useful. These are community solutions. Zehr is the author of the formative work, Changing Lenses, and of the photo-essay books Transcending: Reflections of Crime Victims; and Doing Life: Reflections of Men and Women Serving Life Sentences. A title in The Little Books of Justice and Peacebuilding Series.
