Join the Justice Research and Statistics Association for a webinar on Restorative Justice: Introduction to Contemporary Approaches and Research on Effectiveness, on Thursday, November 5th – 2-3 PM EST. Restorative justice is based on the premise that crime is a violation of people and relationships and therefore it is important to repair the harm caused by a criminal act. Using a variety of different approaches that offer an additional, or in some cases an alternative to traditional justice system processing, restorative justice brings the offender, victim, and often others together so that the offender understands and acknowledges their criminal behavior was harmful to others and takes action to repair that harm to the fullest extent possible. This webinar will present an overview of the different restorative justice applications being used in the field along with an introduction to research on restorative justice effectiveness.
