Restorative justice repairs the harm caused by crime. When victims, offenders and community members meet to decide how to do that, the results can be transformational.
It emphasizes accountability, making amends, and — if they are interested — facilitated meetings between victims, offenders, and other persons.
The Centre for Justice & Reconciliation is internationally recognized as experts on the use of restorative justice.
Our mission is to develop and promote restorative justice in criminal justice systems around the world. We are convinced that restorative justice is an important contemporary expression of timeless standards of justice. While operating within the Christian tradition, we find common ground and collaborate with people from all backgrounds and traditions.
