What is Restorative Justice?

Restorative justice practice is a philosophy based on a set of principles for responding to harm and wrongdoing that is victim-centered and focuses on offender accountability to those who were harmed as well as to the laws or rules that were broken.

Historically restorative justice principles were used to address crimes within the justice system. The principles have now been used in schools with positive results. Within this philosophy wrongdoing is viewed as a violation of a person or community as well as a violation of a discipline code or public law.
