Towards Empowerment: Embedding agency and accountability in restorative justice

Towards Empowerment: Embedding agency and accountability in restorative justice

This presentation goes over reflections on the development of restorative justice (RJ) theories, providing a foundation for understanding how these principles have shaped contemporary practices and approaches in the field. Moving from theory to practice, the crucial role of empowerment in RJ becomes evident. Empowering individuals and communities is not only a theoretical concept but also a practical strategy that enhances the effectiveness of restorative justice interventions. Key to this empowerment are the concepts of agency and accountability, which enable individuals to take responsibility for their actions and actively participate in the restorative process.
