Restorative Justice Learnings and Opportunities

Saturday, Mar 22, 2014, 2:45 pm

This workshop will focus on the great contributions Africa has made to the development of restorative (as opposed to punitive, as in the US) justice practices. Another key component of a “just peace” lens, these practices have notable impact in South Africa with the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, Rwanda with the gacaca approach, and in Sierra Leone with fambul tok. What can we learn from these RJ strategies, and what opportunities are there today for advancing RJ practices in spaces of conflict in Africa?
