Restorative Justice

What is Restorative Justice?

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 right as possible.


Howard Zehr, The Little Book of Restorative Justice, 2002, p. 37.
