Restorative Justice Framework

What is Restorative Justice? 

Restorative justice, at its most basic level, is a way for an individual to take responsibility for any harm they may have caused to another individual or the community. This process allows for all parties effected (victim, offender, and community) to process how the harm can be restored for the individuals involved. On a college campus often times students, staff, faculty, and other on and off campus community members may find that they have been affected directly or indirectly by an individual or groups behavior. Restorative justice practices can provide the space for profound learning moments and reparation. 

Restorative Justice is driven by four guiding principles: 

Inclusive decision-making - Putting the decision making back into the hand of the individuals that care most about the harm that has occurred. 

Active accountability - An offender cannot sit back and be judged. They must be engaged in the process and take responsibility. 

Repairing harm - Focuses on hearing a reparation to bring up the harmed party. 

Rebuilding trust - Rebuilding the relationships so that the offender can once again be trusted and the harmed party can feel safe.
