Restorative Justice

Restorative Justice, Theory, & Practice
Current criminal justice policies and practices have overburdened the criminal justice system leading to the exploration of alternatives. Restorative Justice offers a different perspective on how we think about and respond to crime: it provides opportunities for those most affected to collectively understand, determine, and address needs that rise in crime’s wake. In this course we will explore restorative justice and the ideas that form its foundation, question its strengths and shortcomings, examine restorative practices, and investigate opportunities to put it into practice.
