Course Details

Restorative Justice Seminar

The Restorative Justice Seminar provides an introduction to restorative justice, a philosophy which focuses on a relational, value-based approach to addressing community needs and interests. It offers a different perspective on justice, conflict, and community and is rooted in Indigenous traditions. Restorative justice centers on reparation rather rather than punishment. It emphasizes the role of interconnection, self-determination, and democratization in transforming conflict and relationships. In this course, students will learn about the theoretical foundations of restorative justice and the application of restorative practices in a variety of settings, including legal systems, schools, police departments, workplaces, communities, and families. Students will examine the intersection of restorative justice and carceral systems, and the course will explore the development and the growth of the restorative justice movement.
