Restorative justice is a concept which emphasizes healing the wounds of victims, prisoners and communities which have been impacted by crime. The main practices and programs of restorative justice reflect: identifying and taking steps to repair harm done, involving all stakeholders and transforming the traditional relationship between communities and their governments… Restorative Justice Week is observed in over 18 countries all around the world. This year it was observed during the week of November 18-22, 2002.
