Every year, the RJ4All International Institute celebrates International Restorative Justice Week #RJWeek. Our goal is to raise awareness about the importance of restorative justice practices, and the restorative justice ethos.

From the 15th of November until the 22nd of November 2020, our staff, interns and volunteers will post free resources and inspiring quotes that we hope can help increase awareness of restorative justice.

RJ4All is the leading international restorative justice network of restorative justice researchers, practitioners and organisations. Join us if you believe in the power of restorative justice and our collective, international mission!

You can also join our Restorative Justice Research Network group, the largest Facebook group about restorative justice!

What is Restorative Justice?

Restorative Justice is an “ethos”
Restorative Justice is an ethos with practical goals, among which is to restore harm by including affected parties in a (direct or indirect) encounter and a process of understanding through voluntary and honest dialogue.” (Gavrielides 2007: 139).

As an ethos, Restorative Justice can be applied in a broad range of contexts, including hate crime, domestic violence, or even to improve people’s mental health.
