What is restorative justice?
Restorative justice is a model of justice which defines crime as a disruption of community harmony and relationships. According to the restorative model of justice, crime should be addressed within the community through active involvement by members of the community, the victim, and the offender.
Restorative justice stresses holding offenders directly accountable to victims of their crimes and to the community through repairing the harm done, and restoring the relationship between offender, victim, and community to one of harmony. Examples of restorative justice practice include victim-offender mediation, circle sentencing, family group conferencing, and reparative probation.
