Restorative justice focuses on fixing the damage done by a crime as opposed to only punishing the perpetrator. It is about bringing the community, the victim(s), and the offender(s) together to decide how to do this. Coming together to restore rather than to punish can have a transformative impact on the criminal justice system. Being allowed to confront the offenders can also allow victims of crimes to regain their peace of mind. With this in mind the Dewey Graduate Library is here to provide our students resources and information on this important topic.
