Restorative Justice

The course on Restorative Justice is focused on exploring the concept of justice as a means of restoring relationships between primary stakeholders in the aftermath of a crime. The traditional legal system views crime as a violation of the law, but Restorative Justice takes a different approach by empowering victims, offenders, communities, and families to define justice and resolve conflicts collaboratively. Through this course, participants will examine the experiences of Restorative Justice and circle processes from different parts of the world, with a particular emphasis on African traditional processes of justice. Case studies from the Karamanjong system in Uganda, the Gachacha system in Rwanda, and the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) in South Africa will be discussed. Participants will also have the opportunity to share their traditional justice systems, fostering a deeper understanding of diverse approaches to justice.
