What is Restorative Justice?

The easiest way to understand Restorative Justice is represented in the following graphic illustration:

Restorative justice holds that justice is about repair, about putting things right. It does this by:

  • Focusing on harms and needs
  • Addressing obligations
  • Using inclusive, collaborative processes
  • Involving victims, offenders, communities

We see a distinction between the approach of restorative justice based on the above concepts, restorative justice processes (bringing parties together with the help of a facilitator) and other more didactic and therapeutic programmes. Processes and programmes can also be undertaken at any stage of the criminal justice system.
