CJ 246 - Restorative Justice

Restorative Justice presents a new paradigm of community justice focusing on the three parties involved in crime: the offender, victim, and community. Crime is seen as an injury to people and the community, and thus the focus of justice shifts to repairing those injuries, with all parties participating in the outcome: vindication of the victim, opportunities of accountability and rehabilitation of the offender, and peace and public order for the community. Contrasts between the Restorative Justice Approach and the traditional retributive response to crime will be undertaken. Topics will include: mediation, victim-offender reconciliation, family group conferencing, community service, and offender reintegration. Films, speaker.
