This book, 'Restorative justice: Legal framework and practices in the Philippines' is an initial effort by PhilRights, together with the Ateneo Human Rights Center (AHRC), People's initiative for learning and community Development (PILCD) and the Institute of Bangsamoro studies (IBS), to explore the rudimentary bases of restorative justice in the age-old practices of Filipino indigenous peoples as well as in the existing laws (albeit few) of the land. The idea is to cult from the wisdom of indigenous modes of conflict and dispute-management and from the few existing formal laws rich lessons that could help reorient the country's judicial and punishment regimes.
