  • A nonpunitive justice paradigm often posited as an alternative to retributive justice. There is no definitive definition of restorative justice as it is a set of principles rather than a particular practice or program. Core values include victims' rights, informal social controls, reconciliation, mediation, restitution, community participation, and reintegration. According to restorative justice philosophy, three parties ought to be included in the response and resolution of criminal events: the victim, the offender, and the community. A variety of practices are associated with restorative justice, including victim-offender mediation, healing circles, family group conferencing, reparation boards, and victim-offender reconciliation programs. Restorative justice practices can be found throughout the world.
