CRMN 3040U – Restorative Justice


This course provides an introduction and exposure to the principles of restorative justice (RJ) and its application to the treatment of human suffering whether as a result of crime or some other harm. In this model, harms such as crime are viewed as wrongs against another person and indicative of a broken relationship between the offender, victim and community. The course examines the needs and roles of key stakeholders (victims, offenders, communities, justice systems), and outlines the history and primary models of RJ practice. Students will examine the empirical evidence for restorative justice, as well as the challenges of creating and sustaining restorative environments, initiatives and resources to support communities in developing safer, healthier and sustainable relationships.
