Restorative Justice

Restorative justice is a theory that calls for repairing damage done by the offender to the victim. The process of restorative justice has the best outcome when all of the stakeholders are present and motivated towards making amends.

The value of restorative justice for many is that through this process both victim and victimizer will come to see the other party as human beings beyond what the court systems themselves have to offer.

Some of the typical kinds of restorative justice programs include victim and offender mediation, ex-offender assistance, victim assistance, restitution and community service. The three principles that are involved in restorative justice include: there be a restoration to those who have been injured, the offender has an opportunity to be involved in the restoration if they desire and the court system's role is to preserve the public order and the community's role is to preserve a just peace.

The four basic tenets of restorative justice include the encounter, amends, reintegration and inclusion. The initial encounter gives an opportunity for victims, offenders and community members to meet to discuss a crime and its aftermath. The amends portion offers the opportunity for the offender to take steps to repair the harm to the victims that they have caused including restitution. The reintegration phase means that both victims and offenders are restored to whole, contributing members of society. The inclusion phase means that all stakeholders in a crime can participate in its resolution.

Restorative justice takes place within the criminal justice system but is a fairly new concept that is starting to gain popularity. Recently, even the popular Oprah television show brought on two sets of guests who exemplified the restorative justice concept. Victims and offenders on Oprah faced off to talk about the crime committed and participants in what turned out to be a cathartic process for both sides.

The restorative justice concept helps repair damages in schools, the workplace and in the communities but the real value in the concept is the restoration of relationships. Most victims are enraged at their offenders even with a satisfactory outcome at a criminal trial. The restorative justice process tries to restore the relationship between victim and offender and thereby helping to restore the victim's relationship with themselves and their communities as well. The same goes for restoring the offender's relationship with themselves and their community. When an offender can take responsibility for a crime and verbalize this to the victim, healing generally happens to both parties.

The restorative justice process is a creative and humane way of dealing with the pain of both victims and offenders in a way not traditional found within the court systems and is found to be helpful by most who participate in such a program.
