Chuck Thomason will speak on Restorative Justice: a Conversation on its history, scope, and function. How should our society and we as individuals respond to wrongdoing? What does justice require? What do our religious or philosophical beliefs indicate should be our response? A model that has brought hope for improving our response has been called Balanced and Restorative Justice.
Restorative justice is a broad term which encompasses a growing social movement to institutionalize peaceful approaches to harm, problem-solving and violations of legal and human rights. These range from international peacemaking tribunals such as the South Africa Truth and Reconciliation Commission to innovations within the criminal and juvenile justice systems, schools, social services and communities.
