Restorative Justice Project | National Council on Crime & Delinquency

What Is Restorative Justice?
Restorative justice offers alternatives to our traditional juvenile and criminal justice systems and harsh school discipline processes. Rather than focusing on punishment, restorative justice seeks to repair the harm done. At its best, through face-to-face dialogue, restorative justice results in consensus-based plans that meet victim-identified needs in the wake of a crime. This can take many forms, most notably conferencing models, victim-offender dialogue, and circle processes. In applications with youth, it can prevent both contact with the juvenile justice system and school expulsions and suspensions. Restorative justice also holds the potential for victims and their families to have a direct voice in determining just outcomes, and reestablishes the role of the community in supporting all parties affected by crime. Several restorative models have been shown to reduce recidivism and, when embraced as a larger-scale solution to wrongdoing, can minimize the social and fiscal costs of crime."

... "Today, NCCD is leading efforts to institutionalize this and other restorative justice alternatives to juvenile and adult incarceration and zero-tolerance school discipline policies across California and the nation. For more information about restorative justice at NCCD, please contact Nuri Nusrat, Program Associate, Restorative Justice Project.

Annette Schmeling's curator insight, August 1, 2014 10:02 AM

Studies have found that Restorative Dialogue Circles have a powerful effect on children as both a form of discipline and as an opportunity for growth. Give students tools for creating and maintaining community and provide a different model for dealing with conflict in peaceful and creative ways.  Congratulations Glenview Elementary School1

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, August 1, 2014 5:56 PM

Dialogue circles which genuinely engage students and open up communication are incredible. The key is setting respectful parameters in which people can authentically communicate and be safe in doing so. This is about being and becoming people and not doing learning.
