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)
