Restorative Justice

Restorative justice – is a process, managed by a mediator, due to which a delinquent and a victim discuss the situation that has occurred together and decide about further resolution of a conflict and reimbursement of damages.

This approach allows participants to make their own decisions to resolve conflict and to take responsibility for consequences of this situation. A court usually takes this decision into account during sentencing.

Practices that are used during the restorative justice are the following:

• mediation between a victim and delinquent,

• circle of social justice,

• family conference,

• forum of civic justice.
