This ToolKit is intended for use by restorative practice stakeholders in community-based, school-based, and/or justice contexts. Readers of the ToolKit will find it organized into four major parts: Background Information, Suggestions for Analysis, Survey Part One: Short Answer, and Survey Part Two: Long Answer. In Background Information, the reader is introduced to the applicability of human rights in young peoples’ lives. Principles embedded in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, and the UN Basic Principles of Restorative Justice and the integration of Rights-Based Restorative Justice are each discussed in turn.3 In the sections Survey Part One and Survey Part Two, tools are provided for use following restorative practice processes/conferences. The surveys provided in Part One are short and are to be administered after the conference at the community/school hosting site. The set of surveys in Part Two are largely based on the shorter tools, are longer, and are administered by a telephone or in-person interviewer. Both survey sets reflect the language and principles of Rights-Based Restorative Practice. (excerpt)
