Restorative Justice Seminar

As the nation struggles to respond to a legacy of deep-seated racism and a novel coronavirus, restorative justice provides a lens for understanding harm, repairing harm, and creating a more just world. The seminar provides an introduction to restorative justice (RJ) theory and practice. RJ focuses on building relationships and equitable communities through value-based approaches. It draws from different Indigenous traditions, emphasizing the importance of interconnection, accountability, healing, and human dignity. Students will learn about foundational principles of RJ and the application of practices in a variety of settings, including the criminal legal system and schools. The class will examine the intersection of RJ and carceral systems and explore the development of the RJ movement.
