What is restorative justice?

Restorative justice deals with conflicts which are likely to create serious repercussions (whether they are personal, family or more generally social) on the people who are the victims or the perpetrators, their environment and the community to which they belong. It aims at giving the opportunity to all the stakeholders to participate actively in the pursuit and implementation of solutions which are likely to enable them to get on with their lives (restoration).

Restorative justice measures suppose:

  • The voluntary participation
  •  of all those who feel concerned
  • by the conflict  of a criminal nature
  • in order to negotiate
  • together
  • through an active participation
  • in the presence and under the supervision of a “justice third party”
  • as well as the assistance of a “psychological and/or social third party”
  • the most fitting solutions for all,
  • with the aim of promoting, through the actors ‘empowerment,
  • the restoration of all and more generally, the return to social harmony.
