WHAT IS RESTORATIVE JUSTICE?
Restorative Justice is a framework of principles and values which focus on addressing the needs of those impacted by harm through relational processes of accountability and repair. Restorative Justice values and principles are applicable in response to harm as well as in its prevention and cessation through relational community building and problem solving. KIPCOR
