The overarching theme is to explore what is state of the art in Restorative Justice (RJ), today and what are future ambitions for engagement with other disciplines.
The workshop will provide the opportunity to bring together academic researchers from the RJ, Theatre and Design professions who are concerned in their existing practice with building empathy. How empathy is built by each profession and the methods they use are likely to be the subject of lively discipline exchange.
A San Francisco man who smashed an Uber driver’s windshield by hurling a skateboard into the moving Prius was acquitted at trial by a jury that found he acted in self-defense, the city public defender’s office said. [...] testimony from the defendant and cell phone video that appeared to back up his account of the confrontation, led to his acquittal Friday, his attorney said. “As a crime victim, Mr. Knaak deserved every bit of the police response and protection that would have been afforded to

Indirect reciprocity means that my behavior towards you also depends on what you have done to others. Indirect reciprocity is associated with the evolution of social intelligence and human language. Most approaches to indirect reciprocity assume obligatory interactions, but here we explore optional interactions.
Simon Baron-Cohen, a professor of developmental psychopathology at the University of Cambridge, recently wrote a book entitled “Zero degrees of empathy: a new theory of human cruelty”. While I have only had the opportunity to read reviews of this book, the comments have prompted me to think of the role of empathy in restorative justice processes.
For those of you who try to implement the principles of restorative practice into your daily lives and interactions with others, I wonder how frequently you think about empathy (see below for a definition). In many circles, we talk about the offender taking “responsibility” for his/her actions. In work and community contexts, we invite people to be “curious” about the other, to withhold judgment.
What a long, strange trip it's been for pot legalization in Colorado. First, the law came under fire last year for not protecting youth as scores of children were taken to emergency rooms after ingesting their parents' pot edibles. Just a few days ago, nine former heads...
