Restorative Justice (RJ) is an increasingly important and effective form of justice. Its focus is on wrongdoing and crime against the individual or the community. The person who has harmed takes responsibility for their actions – within RJ, it is recognised that the person harmed has an important role in the process. This can take the form of an apology and reparation directly or indirectly from the person who has caused harm to the victim. Critically, Restorative Justice often promotes dialogue between the victim and offender. Restorative Justice shares many values with those that are the foundation of Mediation:

  • Honesty, respect and empowerment
  • Positivity and appreciation
  • Collaboration
  • Engagement
  • Voluntary nature
  • Healing and transformation
  • Restoration
  • Accountability
  • Inclusiveness
  • Problem-Solving
