Restorative justice is just one kind among a variety of restorative practices, which have deep roots in indigenous peacemaking. They are meant to provide healing for everyone involved in a conflict. The restorative justice method is unlike traditional criminal justice practices, which often result in high costs (literal and figurative) to justice-impacted individuals and their families and rely on punishments such as confinement and seclusion. Instead, restorative justice practices can uplift and allow a channel for transformation and healing on both sides of a “crime.”
